Really, forget all the Lululemon gear, the Manduka mats, just come and practise yoga with these powerful and inspiring women. You don’t need a thing – a concrete floor in a spartan classroom is sufficient.
The women on the photo live with almost 2000 other Ethiopians in a refugee camp in Gorom, near the capital of South Sudan, Juba. And no, after class they won’t have a chat over a bottle of coconut water, but will instead have to get back to their daily chores, among them carrying firewood, caring for their children, cooking – or simply fetching water.
My heart goes out to these women who prove that enthusiasm makes up for any lack of experience or yoga technique.
Seen on Yoga Dork.
