This year I will be back in Melbourne to manage the Yogathon for Freedom Melbourne: 'Stop child sex slavery with Yoga'.
This year our theme is Asha, or HOPE. .
2018’s Melbourne Yogathon event will happen on 9th September with 80% of the proceeds going directly to the therapeutic programs delivered on the ground to women and children who have endured sex slavery through Art to Healing and their grassroots partners in Nepal. This year, we're supporting Yoga in Action in Melbourne for therapeutic trauma-informed yoga programs for survivors of torture and war, donating 20% of our proceeds to support their vital work.
The ultimate challenge is to join us for 8 hours of yoga + fundraise for freedom. Fundraise for Freedom is a way of using your yoga practice to raise more money for the cause, taking your practice to the next level!
You can also participate in a half day, 2 hours an hour, or as many hours as you like! Your support in standing up for freedom will no doubt change lives.

We’re ready to do something to put an end to the billion-dollar sex slave trade, but we need your support. Together let’s stand up for Freedom and get set to change lives.
WHY SUPPORT YOGA FOR FREEDOM?
1. Because Yoga for Freedom is solely run by volunteers with a whole lotta heart. Yep! We're a bunch of yogis who care deeply about the world, and who are passionate about living our yoga and spiritual practice off the mat. We're a values driven community who can ensure that 100% of the proceeds of ticket sales and donations go straight to Art to Healing & Yoga for Freedom.
2. Art to Healing, our charity partner organisation, is a heart-driven, grassroots Australian registered tax-deductible charity organisation who are also volunteer run. This means that 100% of your donations go directly to the therapeutic programs in Nepal with the women and girls who have experienced child sex slavery & exploitation. (Yes, Art to Healing has only 5% administration costs, mostly to keep the website firing! We don't have any crazy overheads.) Plus you also get a tax-deductible donation receipt (excluding ticket sales) for Fundraise for Freedom for all donations above $2.
