A Story of Healing

“All people have the fundamental right to feel good in their bodies and minds and to be part of a caring community regardless of their background or ability.”

Over the years, yoga instructor Hersha’s students have included stroke survivors, rare disease sufferers, and even prosthetic limb wearers – people for whom yoga is particularly beneficial, as it can help relieve their physical pain. In doing so, Hersha realised that people who actually need yoga therapy the most are often those who cannot afford it. The revelation inspired her to establish the YAMA Foundation with an aim to provide well-being services, such as yoga lessons, to Hong Kong's most vulnerable communities.
