Yoga Stops Traffick 2014 announced

Now in its fifth amazing year, Odanadi’s global annual yoga event YOGA STOPS TRAFFICK is due to take place on Saturday March 15th 2014.

Last year over 2,000 participants from 26 countries around the world showed their support for Odanadi by taking part in 105 events – from the grounds of the Mysore Palace in India to the yoga studios of New York, Tokyo and London. Together, these events raised an incredible £25,000 for Odanadi India.  

The aim of this groundbreaking global event is to raise awareness about human trafficking – a crime that affects men, women and children in every country on the planet – and to raise funds for Odanadi India, to support their work in the rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of trafficking victims.  

Yoga is of huge significance to the young people of Odanadi. As part of their rehabilitation program, it has allowed them to reclaim their bodies; build physical and mental strength, and restore a sense of peace, confidence and self-worth. By standing alongside them on March 15th 2014, you will be demonstrating your solidarity and support for them, as well as sending a message of defiance against a world which allows these horrific abuses to take place.
