Please join us on Mandela's birthday and gift yourself with 67 minutes of yoga, while you reflect on your own greatness and goodness.

Mandela said "Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world." Mandela's legacy also encourages us to trust in our greatness and the goodness of all.
Yoga4Alex supports children in Alexandra Township, Johannesburg. Before lockdown our eight yoga teachers were teaching 5,500 Alexandra high school children how to stay calm and focused through mindfulness and meditation, so that they could excel in their final exams.
In 2018 Yoga4Alex realised that Grade 8 learners appreciate help to improve their English reading skills. So we developed our reading program and train Yoga4Alex youth to teach English literacy.
Despite lockdown, 40 Yoga4Alex tutors continue to teach 400 children English Literacy 1-on-1 or via WhatsApp, because children succeed if they can read.
Your kind donation will help us reach more children to improve their English reading and writing skills during the challenging times of COVID-19.
