A Boston-based Non-Profit Organization has taken an initiative and started teaching Yoga to homeless women and children as the organization believes that it would calm their internal and external pains.
Brookview House has a very fine record in providing shelters for homeless women and children and taking a step ahead, the organization has taken an initiative to teach Yoga.
Two years ago, a 39-year-old woman, Carmen Bones, moved to the Brookview House for help and the organization helped her by providing apartment to live on affordable rates. Bones was a victim of domestic, verbal and financial abuse by her husband.
Actually, she is the one who brought the idea of teaching Yoga to all the women and children.
In a talk with Fox News, she said “Yoga helps us in many ways. It keeps us fit and fine”.
She added, “I am very happy that several teachers have come with us to make this program a successful”.
The organization has been working in the field since 1990 and yet it has changed thousands of lives by providing most of them a platform to learn new skills and build self-esteem.
However, it has more plans and as per as sources, the organization is planning to open its third residence home with 12 more apartments next year.
Deborah Hughes told the Fox News that the organization’s main aim is to break the cycle of homelessness.
She further said, “the national graduation rate of homeless students is around 25 percent and we are working shrink the number to the minimum”.
