Yoga for our kids

Researches have shown that children living in foster homes tend to grow up with a chip on their shoulders. Many come from broken families and often their blemished past adversely affects their personal growth.

This is why children in the Hiichiikok Foundation’s Home For Children Care are trained to free themselves from their broken past in order to become a better person. Many positive training programs were organised for them and one of them is Yoga 

The children were blessed to have  yoga instructor, Florence Ng from Art of Living who volunteers her service for free following the Home’s request.  The children attended a 3-day workshop during the school holiday in June and has since been having monthly follow-up lessons. Besides the breathing exercises and varied postures the children were also  taught  ways to face life in a positive manner and also to free their minds  from their painful past.

Instructor Florence even gave out goodie bags to three of the Home’s children who missed the earlier workshop in The Art of Living Centre in i-City because of the UPSR exams. Florence and another instructor, Sally taught the children basic yoga techniques and social skills during the workshop.

Another Instructor Susan Ng also offered nine teenagers from the Home to attend the “YES” seminar at Art of Living Centre in i-City. Susan was assisted by 2 other instructors Yee Hui and Fiona Lim.  After four days in the camp, the children learned to be positive and confident.
