Hatha Yoga Class for Carers
If you're a carer in the community of a disabled child or young adult and feel overwhelmed, you may be interested in a free Hatha Yoga class for carers at the Brockwell Lido on May 23rd. What with new benefit and support cutbacks daily, more and more of exhausting care responsibility is falling to individuals and what they can muster. The class has been designed as respite for people like you.
Two charities and a Buddhist centre in association with Fusion are offering this class at the Lido for carers of children and young adults who are frail or ill, or have a physical, mental health or learning disability. The organizers recognize the crucial value of people who give in this way and will try to give back on May 23rd with their Introduction to Yoga, led by staff from Jamyang Buddhist Centre in Kennington.
Free coffee and tea will be available at the Lido Cafe after the session.
See our calendar for one further session in this series on June 6th.
Local charity Contact a Family (CAF) represents and supports families with disabled children, which is why the Lido sessions are tailored to carers of children and young adults. The charity Returning the Kindness, based at Jamyang Centre, aspire to offer carers respite and life-enhancing experiences.
If you're interested in this trial session (there are plans for more), you can ring Contact A Family Lambeth on 020 7326 5270 to hold a place, or you can do so by speaking to Lido staff. Alternatively you can contact CAF Lido project leader Kate Burman by email: email@example.com
Remember, you don't have to just wear it ... you can share it!
