Yogahood Australia partners with volunteer yoga instructors, community groups, government agencies and other non-profit orgnisations to provide mindfulness-based yoga to often overlooked and at-risk men, women and youth.
Yogahood Australia's programs also serve men, women, and youth facing challenges with mental health, addiction, poverty, violence, trauma, or homelessness.
Our yoga outreach is currently taken to community groups in need around Melbourne with the aim of reaching communities right throughout Australia in the future.
Since our inception in 2015, we have brought free yoga to men, women and youth in need through our strong partnerships
with other non-profits and organisations.
We partner with others serving at-risk and underserved men, women and youth so our work can have the greatest reach and impact.
6-week free yoga program
We provide a free 6-week yoga program to eligable organisations serving and working with at-risk and underserved communities.
In our classes, students are invited to connect with their bodies in a safe and supportive way by:
learning to be present
practicing and experiencing making choices
experiencing taking effective action
increasing and decreasing the intensity in muscles
connecting with their body and the environment through their breath
Our classes are culturally sensitive and respect the beliefs, values, and needs of the individual.
Introduction to Yoga
Organisations who do not wish to sign up to our free 6-week yoga program can trial our yoga classes. These are charged at $70 per class which goes directly to the teacher with 20% donated back to us to support our outreach work.
Since our inception in 2015, we have partnered with organisations such as Headspace, EACH, Launch Housing, Mind Australia and other non-profits who serve the wider community.
Our aim is to provide additional support in their client's journey towards wellbeing, health and healing.
We collect feedback from each of our programs so we can measure and assess the impact of our services.
Common feedback shows our 6-week yoga programs help students build trust, manage their emotions, develop a connection to themselves and others, and help manage stress and anxiety.
