I felt such a sense of community and connection at the Yoga Stops Traffick event, hosted by Lululemon HK on 5th March 2017. It was an incredible feeling to be part of something this big – using yoga to raise awareness and funds to help victims of human trafficking.
I was astounded to learn that today there are an estimated 20-30 MILLION slaves, 79% of which are sexually exploited. Human trafficking is the third largest international crime behind drugs and arms trafficking. It’s a global problem – and this annual event raises funds for the anti-trafficking organisation Odanadi Seva Trust which runs residential rehabilitation and reintegration centres in Mysore.
We flowed through 108 Sun Salutations on the beautiful Shek O Beach, which were guided by a handful of HK’s top instructors. I had the great pleasure doing a bit of filming to put this video together. It also meant that I could take a little break from time to time, because 108 sun salutations is actually quite a feat! I am indeed very sore this morning : )
