As coronavirus has us social distancing or isolating, we are bringing Amaliah Nights In online! We recognise this is a challenging time for many people and want to be able to support our community with online activities, classes and events, to bring a sense of ease. We also recognise this is a difficult time for creatives, freelancers, small businesses and self-employed and aim for this online series to highlight the brilliant work and community of Muslim women. We will be kicking off with yoga, guided journaling and art club, keep on reading for more details and follow us on Instagram to keep up to date.

And if you haven’t caught our Amaliah Works From Home podcast yet, have a listen here where we talk mental health during social distancing, shaming of panic buying and the blessings we’ve reflectied on in this moment.

This week’s programme on the Amaliah Instagram is:

Muslim Youth Helpline provide faith and culturally sensitive support by phone, live chat or email. To access their 7 day a week service you can:

With the global pandemic and the constant news bulletins and whatsapp forwards, it can be easy to become overwhelemed. Take a moment out of your day to try out Yoga with Hanan. While many will be increasing the time we spend at home, it is important to ensure we keep moving. You will be able to join Hanan at 11am to follow along with her live yoga session and ask any questions!

Maybe you just see journaling as a buzzword and want to try it out, or perhaps you’re in a bit of a rut and don’t know where to start. We’ve got Che bringing you a gudided journalling IG live to help us all along. So have a pen and paper ready, to take a moment to reflect.

You can also watch Che in this video talking about 5 things we can all do to find balance while self isolating or social distancing during the coronavirus.

Elegant and ethereal but also precise and geometric, Lakshmi’s drawings and watercolours exist somewhere between the abstract and the realistic, often presenting what appear to be the free-flowing organic forms of nature through intricately ordered patterns. You might recognise Lakshmi’s work from the artwork on our Lights On podcast. Lakshmi will be joining us on Instagram to show you her life as an artist and tell you about L’s art club! We will be releasing tickets to her exclusive Amaliah x ThisLakshmi online art club class!
