SOLIDARITY / ANIMAL CAUSE: Support the animal cause by taking care of yourself


Last Saturday, the SXM Animals Collective organized its first yoga session on the beach of Orient Bay in order to raise awareness of the animal cause and to raise funds for the association. 

Guided by Tania, a yoga teacher at Vitalita who gave classes on a voluntary basis, the budding yogis installed their beach towel as a yoga mat on the sand, facing the sea. A dozen participants thus indulged in Yoga Karma for one hour, course given in French and English. The SXM Animals Collective, very active in the care of abandoned dogs on the island, offered participants a free donation to access the course. If a basic yoga class costs around 20 euros, each participant gives here what he wants or can and all donations go back to the association after the Yoga Karma session. The choice of this practice resonates with the mindset of the association. Indeed, Yoga Karma, also called "selfless action", is an ancestral practice that aims for harmony between body and mind by awakening qualities essential to self-fulfillment such as altruism, benevolence , detachment, consecration or even humility. If there was a mantra for Yoga Karma, it would be “do your best”, and this is precisely the precept that the SXM Animal Collective has followed since its inception. Given the success of this first edition, the Yoga Karma classes for beginners will be given every second Saturday of the month at 17:15 p.m. on the beach of Orient Bay between Coco Beach and KKO. The goal remains the same: to raise funds to help the association, whether it's a donation of money, a bag of kibble or a dog toy. You should know that the costs related to the care of a dog between identification, sterilization, passport and medical expenses are on average 250 euros per animal. After the yoga session and delighted with this new experience, the participants had the freedom to ask all their questions to Elise and Camille, representatives of the SXM Animals Collective. The first edition of Yoga Karma Animals raised €120, two bags of kibble and a good dose of positive vibes for everyone. As a bonus last Saturday: participants were able to cuddle two coconut puppies available for adoption. The next meeting is therefore set for August 13 at 17:15 p.m. on Orient Bay beach. _Vx
