As one of over 200 yoga instructors across Australia who have registered, Julia Pfitzner has donated a yoga class on August 26 to raise funds and awareness for the issues women face through domestic violence and homelessness.
Share the Dignity is committed to supporting homeless and at risk women by ensuring they are afforded the dignity they deserve, with their key initiative being provision of sanitary and menstruation products to women in need.
Every night in Australia 48,000 women are homeless. #Yoga4Dignity aims to get 48,000 people to stand, stretch, bend and unite in sharing dignity. Now in its second year, #Yoga4Dignity is expected to be Australia’s biggest yoga celebration of women supporting women.
Share the Dignity founder Rochelle Courtenay said:
“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.
“Our mission is to enable and empower all Australian women and children to have the dignity they deserve.”
“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,” Julia Pfitzner said of the cause.
#Yoga4Dignity is further supported by Yoga Australia, with one third of the registered instructors for #Yoga4Dignity being Yoga Australia members.
