Fierce Calm are providing free yoga and trauma therapy sessions to adults, children and their families in Ukraine.
We are also supporting and funding our yoga teachers, studios & partners in the region dedicated to helping those who desperately need our help by co-ordinating and distributing emergency medical care, food, shelter, clothes and trauma resilience / wellbeing training & support in the region alongside and to humanitarian agencies on the ground.
Our program in Sambir, Ukraine, is being driven buy our remarkable project leader Yuliiya Denisova Rubinshtein from her studio - Ashtanga Yoga Ukraine - where her team are providing a healing community space and support for all, while offering free Fierce Calm funded yoga classes to adults, children and their guardians, including the availability of one to one therapy sessions with trained therapists. We have also secured and managed to supply Ukrainian language children's colour therapy books for families to take away on their journey, helping them process a whole new range of unexpected and terrifying emotions. And our remarkable teachers, like Yuliiya, are doing this while volunteering in humanitarian aid centres, distributing medical supplies and supporting animal shelters.
We're established here in the UK, offering specialist trauma informed yoga to those seeking international protection, from places such as Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Eritrea, Iraq & South Asia. Thankfully, we currently have the funds and resources to continue our existing programs serving people from all over the world, but as the refugee crisis places a strain on infrastructure and psycho-social support charities, like Fierce Calm and Ourmala, we will need your help.
This is also one of the first times our community is actively serving those in need within a country at war, and our incredibly courageous team and Fierce Calm community there need your help as the situation becomes increasingly more urgent.
It is with the support of our global yoga community that we are able to help sustain our yoga community in Ukraine in the face of unimaginable adversity.
