First Women’s Yoga Training Centre Opens in Gaza
There’s a new way for Palestinian women to cope with trauma and stresses linked to living in the Gaza Strip. There are only a couple of recreational facilities in the densely populated area. One of them is the recently opened yoga-training center.
Amal Khayal, head of the women’s activities for Cooperazione Internazionale Sud Sud, spearheaded the project. She also teaches yoga classes in the makeshift gym. The mission of the project was to train at least 30 women to become yoga instructors.
According to Khayal, her organization wants to use physical activities to lessen psychological pressures. Women can come to the training center to find a support group and at the same time learn new activities.
Aside from yoga, the center also teaches women circus tricks. At present, there are 19 training to become yoga instructors and 13 training as circus tricks instructors. More women want to sign up for lessons at the center.
