The Jill Jones Memorial Yoga Programme
Three local organisations have come together in a unique collaboration to offer FREE yoga classes to homeless people in Worthing in memory of a local yoga teacher: The Jill Jones Memorial Yoga Programme.
Jill Jones from Worthing was a long-standing teacher with the BWY, but sadly passed away in 2019. She was a much-loved yoga teacher in the Brighton and Hove/West Sussex Area for 40 years. Brighton Yoga Foundation was deeply moved by the unexpected donations from family and friends and established a suitable memorial in her name.
Brighton Yoga Foundation is a registered charity that works across Sussex to bring yoga to those who would benefit greatly from yoga classes but do not usually have access to it. They have teamed up with Turning Tides, the largest homeless charity in West Sussex. They have been supporting rough sleepers and homeless men and women for over 29 years. These classes will be facilitated by Salt Water studios who offer a range of yoga and well-being activities in Worthing.
Classes will launch on the 25 May and continue on a weekly basis until the end of summer. They will be taught by Nathalie Wilhelm, a much-loved yoga teacher with specialist training and experience in this area.
