Yoga group hum­bled

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE PORT Dou­glas Yoga com­mu­nity has been in­spired by its re­cent month-long visit to In­dia, the home of Yoga.

The com­mu­nity made up of ac­cred­ited prac­ti­tion­ers in Port Dou­glas, Moss­man, Wonga Beach and Ju­lat­ten vis­ited the Taj Ma­hal and a school of 126 stu­dents, to share yoga tips.

“It was won­der­ful, they did some yoga for us and adored prints of Aus­tralian an­i­mals Fran do­nated that the chil­dren had never seen be­fore,” Shirley Lloyds said.

The group handed out crayons to the stu­dents of the school run by local mayor Ma­ha­rani Ro­hini who opened the school in 2000 to ed­u­cate the local vil­lage chil­dren while spon­sor­ing 23 chil­dren her­self.

“We ad­mired her and what she does and we want to sup­port the chil­dren be­cause par­ents of­ten pull the chil­dren out to work be­cause they can’t af­ford to keep them there,” Ms Lloyds said.

In a bid to raise fur­ther funds for the school a new and used treasure’s sale, fea­tur­ing beau­ti­ful In­dian scarves and hand­bags, will be held at the CWA Hall, Front St Moss­man this Satur­day from 7.30am to 2pm.

In­spired: Dou­glas Yoga with Ma­ha­rani Ro­hini
