CYC - can you contribute to the fund by taking part in events, or do you know someone who might benefit from a subsidy from the fund to help with yoga classes:

CYC: Community Yoga Collective is an initiative set up by Rachel Wilkinson to make Yoga, mindfulness and other healing therapies accessible, affordable and achievable for all, regardless of current or historic circumstances. 
We are a diverse community providing support for those experiencing difficulties.
CYC gives power back to the people and responsibility back to individuals, that allows people to gain their own agency. 
CYC believe in a hand up rather than a hand out, moving towards a more collaborative approach to support, where individuals are encouraged to invest in themselves. 
First and foremost we are a movement that’s sustainable through fundraising events.

We have collaborations between CYC & individuals/organisations wanting to support the idea of making wellbeing accessible.
Proceeds from events are distributed in to the community, subsidising classes, workshops, retreats and other healing therapies. 
We believe in supporting people to support themselves through collective empowerment!
