108 Sun Salutations to benefit Yoga Stops Traffick

While in Mysore last year, Evan and I had the great pleasure of attending this event at the gates of the Mysore Palace. This year, tapas yoga shala will particiapte as one of 114 events in 34 countries worldwide. Here's just a bit of info on this spectacular organization:
* Odanadi Seva Trust is a pioneering anti-trafficking organization based in Mysore, South India, working for the rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of t...rafficked women and children.
* Today Odanadi runs two residential rehabilitation centres in Mysore, housing up to 85 women and young people at any one time.
* Many Odanadi residents have been rescued from the hands of brothel owners and sex traffickers, others from abusive homes, child marriages ordomestic and commercial servitude.
* Over the past 20 years Odanadi has rescued and rehabilitated more than 2,000 children, carried out 60 brothel raids and brought 137 traffickers to justice.
* Odanadi's unique psycho-social therapy program has become accepted as best practice both within India and internationally. The Union Human Resource Development Ministry has adopted the Odanadi model, and many other Indian state governments have sent rescued girls to Odanadi to facilitate their rehabilitation.
* Odanadi residents are provided with a wide range of therapeutic activities, from psychological counseling to art therapy, drama, karate to yoga and acupuncture.
