Yoga class to help raise awareness for domestic violence issues

Eliza Joske has donated a yoga class at Streaky Bay this weekend for #Yoga4Dignity, an initiative aiming to raise funds and awareness for the issues women face through domestic violence and homelessness.

The class will take place on Saturday, September 1 at the jetty platform from 4.30pm.

Every night in Australia 48,000 women are homeless and Share the Dignity has been committed to supporting homeless and at-risk women by ensuring they are afforded the dignity the deserve, with their key initiative being the provision of sanitary and menstruation products to women in need.

#Yoga4Dignity is now in its second year and aims to get 48,000 people to stand, stretch, bend and unite in sharing dignity.

“Yoga has been transformative for me, I can’t think of a better way to unite Australians to raise awareness and funds to support the many women and girls who are doing it tough,” Ms Joske said.

Share the Dignity founder Rochelle Courtenay said their mission was to enable and empower all Australian women and children to have the dignity they deserve.

“Yoga is such an inclusive way of bringing Australians together and downward dogging and saluting for all the women and children needing our help in Australia,” she said.
