Zentra Kokoro Project
Yoga for the community
We feel that we have been fortunate in our life to come in contact with Yogic science, and we also feel that we have been fortunate to share this with the people of Japan. The response has been very positive and because of this we have grown into a solid organisation which can share this knowledge to many and make their life a nicer experience. Unfortunatly many people don’t have the resource or the capacity to come to our class. With Zentra Kokoro Project we target those who were not capable to join and offer them the possibility to learn the science of yoga in a way they can afford.
Our first focus will be to bring yoga to elders in Yaizu and Shizuoka community. The Elders of Japan are the reason why this country has a strong society, they have given their soul the rebuilt this country after the war and very often they are left behind and are seen as weight from the yonger generations.
The idea is to bring confort to those left behind or those living alone, to give them an occasion to get together with others and with the help of the teacher giving them a reason to live by acknowledging their existence, giving them a few exercices to reduce their tension and reenergise their body and also to give them a moment to acknowledge their inner Self the Divine within their own body.
As a yoga teacher we know that the human body is not only a physical envelop but a multi dimentional expression of the Self and for this reason will acknowledge this during our practice with the elders.
The project is also oriented for the growth of the teacher that will take part in the activity.
Kokoro Project has build a bank of 30 teachers, those theicher are either people who has done Zentra teacher course or student of Zentra who already have a teacher traing course done.The reason why we need to have a certain connection with Zentra Yoga Studio is because we want teachers who understand the human body as a multidimensional Self.
The teachers ready to give their time to this project are asked to do so for a period of minimum 6 month during this periode will ask the disponibility of at least once o month. If some people a ready to give once o week or more they will be more then welcome
We are thinking to ask a donation of 3000 per session ( one hour) to the organisation who take our service, their will also have case where no donation would be possible from the organisation.? Kokoro project is for all and will accept any demand. Maybe in the future will try to go and ask certain organisation to fund or project but this is but this will have to be discuss between the members.
Kokoro project want to start with elders, and will also try to further our project with other group like handicap, prisoners, orphans or any people in need.
Kokoro project will Also give special training to its member once every two months, also each session will be a time for the membres to meet and talk about the project its direction.
May this project live long,? Thank for everyone to take part in it.
