Yoga 
for a Change

Yoga for a Change is created for people to practice yoga, move and relax - while contributing to worthy causes that enhance livelihoods in Singapore. We teach weekly outdoors yoga classes at Marina Bay, Botanic Gardens, Fort Canning Park, East Coast Park, and ad-hoc events such as gong relaxation, meditation sessions and day retreats from which all proceeds are donated to nonprofits. 

 

Since 2017, the collective of yoga teachers has fundraised for charities that support welfare, education and healthcare for women, children and the elderly in Singapore.

In 2022 we have donated a total of S$36,635 to Daughters of Tomorrow, Aidha, LOVE, NILS and Aware Singapore.

Story

HOW IT STARTED

Laura is originally from Switzerland and Italy, grew up moving around eight countries, and eventually landed in Singapore in 2013 where she discovered the practice and philosophy of yoga. 

While Laura was working in an intense consulting role and volunteering her free time at Aidha, she invited her friend and teacher Sherri to lead a yoga class at her office. Seeing the joy in her non-practitioner colleagues who would otherwise not step into a studio, she decided to complete her Yoga Teacher Training with the intention to make the practice of yoga accessible for all levels and age groups. 

Laura started leading yoga classes for her office colleagues and parents, and was inspired by her friend (and now Yoga for a Change volunteer teacher) Meerly who was donating her yoga classes’ proceeds to TWC2.

In 2017, Laura decided to bring meaning to her sessions by making them donations-based and giving all proceeds to Aidha & Aware - two charities she was personally close to and where she was confident that funds would be put to good use. Yoga for a Change was born!
