Yoga for charity: Bray business to donate 50% of fees to support people in direct provision
A local Bray yoga business has come up with a unique way of supporting direct provision centres – by donating 50% of their fees for a week.
SOZEN Lifestyle, which is run by Sorcha Ni Craith, will begin online classes on September 6, for €10, half of which will be donated to the charity Direct Provison Donations.
Direct Provison Donations aims to spread awareness about living in the system and helping asylum seekers in Ireland as w ell collect badly needed donations of money and products.
“I decided to run two weeks of donation based classes called to help those who have very little, specifically those in direct provision” Sorcha said.
“We run our studio out of CSP Gym on Ardee Street off the Dargle Road running and you can contact me at @sozenlifestyle on Facebook if you would like to learn more.”
SOZEN Lifestyle classes start this Sunday and will consist of Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pilates, Fitness, Injury Prevention, Strength and Flexibility.
Clients will have the choice between semi-private studio classes or interactive online classes.
SOZEN Memberships will include access to a Private Facebook Support group where teachers will post daily educational content, guided meditations and support for all SOZEN Lifestyle clients from all SOZEN teachers and coaches.
Last Winter, Sorcha and the team at SOZEN Lifestyle raised more than €730 for Bray Area Rough Sleepers Support (BARSS) in a similar fundraising drive.
