MEDIA RELEASE

For Immediate Release – 8th August 2018

Join in Australia’s largest simultaneous Yoga day to help support women and children affected by Family Violence.

As one of over 200 yoga instructors across Australia who have registered, Carmel Taylor has donated a yoga class on Saturday the 1st of September at 3pm 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”

Rochelle said “Our mission is to enable and empower all Australian women and children to have the dignity they deserve.”

Carmel Taylor said “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.”

#Yoga4Dignity is further supported by Yoga Australia, with one third of the registered instructors for #Yoga4Dignity being Yoga Australia members.

I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of sledger. ‘It’s not a game, it’s a shame’ has been coming from my mouth quite regularly these past few days. It’s easy to sledge when you’re winning and aren’t we just! It’s a gold rush and it’s all the Aussie way.  And it brings out the worst in me. I can’t help it. It’s my competitive nature coming out. But last night, as my 6-year-old did the ‘Dab’ that Usain Bolt is so famous for and chanted my words, I thought ‘perhaps it’s time to reign it in a bit’.
