Dalvina has been practicing yoga with Edinburgh Community Yoga for several years. She first accessed our outreach programme through Womenzone and then went on to complete our 6-month ASP mentoring programme. Dalvina volunteers for ECY as peer support at our weekly chair and mat based classes in Wester Hailes.
“Volunteering for ECY has been such a positive experience for me. I feel I am an accepted, included and valued member of the team. When I am on my yoga mat I’m not in competition with anyone else, It’s just me and my mat. And that has been a beautiful journey. ECY has empowered me through teaching me to do yoga as well as giving me a role as a peer support.”
