Yoga fundraiser; Shut Down Yarl's Wood Detention Centre (Movement for Justice)
Jun 30, 2015

A yoga fundraiser led by Clare Coyne and Jilly Shah to support Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary's campaign to Shut Down Yarl's Wood. The class will be by donation and funds raised will contribute to the costs of the protest at Yarl's Wood that will take place on Saturday 8th August. The class will include a gentle warm up, slow and mindful yoga and some discussion/sharing about the issue. Please let us know if you plan to attend, and if you plan to bring your own yoga mat or if we should provide you with one.
