Seva is a Sanskrit word that describes the act of selfless service. Its meaning is said to be embodied by the root words saha, meaning "with that," and eva, meaning "too," which together mean "together with."

HELPING HAND - YOGA DONATION FOR THE HOMELESS
Sunday, February 10th, 11h-12h
14 Boulevard Poissonnière
Tarif: DONATION (please see list below!)
"Kindness is a language that the deaf and hear and the blind can see" Together we are stronger, together we can change things.
I've decided this month, to work again with Entraides Citoyennes, who support the homeless community around Paris.
The Yoga Session will be centred around LOVING KINDNESS. A practice that can literally change our lives, and hopefully, the lives of others. By practicing loving kindness on a regular basis, we're more likely to see the good in people and situations and be a little less hard on ourselves!
I'm hoping to have live music and some other teachers present (donating their time) to make sure you get the most out of your practice, and that you all enjoy a relaxing massage at the end!
In exchange for the yoga class, I ask one thing! Thank you donate something. The following list was given to me by the president of Entraide Citoyenne, so please try to stick to it and bring something (or several things) from the list. Please note: NO CLOTHING - they have too much!
Sleeping bags, duvets, covers, towels.
Bathroom essentials (tooth brushes, toothpaste, rasors, shaving cream, shampoo, shower gel, sanitary towels, baby wipes).
IN ADDITION: Entraides Citoyenne organises weekly "maraudes" around Paris to check in on the homeless community. The team of volunteers cooks food for the homeless and they are in need of:
Litres of Olive oil
1kg bags of salt; dried garlic; fennel seeds, tandoori massala (these can be found in Indian shops around La Chapelle for those of you in that area).
The class is open to all levels, you'll need to bring your own Yoga mat along with your donations.
If anyone wishes to make a money donation, I will also have an envelope with me. I will be taking the donations myself to the centre (if anyone wishes to join me, you're more than welcome). If you are unable to attend, but you still wish to donate, you can find me at one of my regular classes and I'll store things at home until I make the donation.
