All our classes are run by a pro­fes­sion­ally qual­i­fied Drama Teacher and fol­low a struc­tured pro­gram that sup­ports stu­dents learn­ing and per­sonal growth. Yo­gis Na­dine War­brick, Shawn Tay­lor and Court­ney Rolle hope to raise funds for Scar­lett. A YOUNG Perth girl with a rare ge­netic dis­or­der has touched the lives of Fre­man­tle yo­gis.

Scar­lett Whit­more is not even two years old but she is al­ready bat­tling hy­po­to­nia, global de­vel­op­ment de­lay, cor­ti­cal vi­sion im­pair­ment and sen­sorineu­ral hear­ing loss, yet some­how she is still al­ways smil­ing.

Yo­gaLab yo­gis have joined forces with Clare­mont’s Lu­l­ule­mon to hold a spe­cial fundrais­ing event for lit­tle Scar­lett, invit­ing lo­cals to come down for a ses­sion of blind­folded vinyasa and mind­ful­ness meditation.

Yo­gaLab Fre­man­tle di­rec­tor Kel­lie Pat­ton said all pro­ceeds from the ticket sales would be given to the fam­ily to help cover med­i­cal bills and treat­ment costs.

“When we heard about Scar­lett and the daily chal­lenges she faces, it was im­pos­si­ble not to want to help,” she said.

“The med­i­cal ther­apy and treat­ment she re­ceives will be on­go­ing and ex­pen­sive, so help­ing to raise funds, if it takes a bit of pres­sure off in that re­gard, is the least we could do.

“The event will be an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to ap­pre­ci­ate their sense of sight and hear­ing and have a small glimpse into what Scar­lett calls re­al­ity on a daily ba­sis.”

The At­ti­tude for Grat­i­tude event is at Yo­gaLab Fre­man­tle on Septem­ber 29.

Tick­ets are $30 and can be pur­chased from www.try­book­­mu­ni­ d473950
