Who Are We?
The Yoga for Life Project is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC). We provide a specialist therapeutic approach to yoga designed to help support health and well-being in the community and in the workplace. Our specialist yoga teachers and yoga therapists have devised a range of classes with the aim of improving the physical and mental health of the general population.
The classes offered by The Yoga for Life Project fall into two main categories:
classes with general therapeutic benefits, appropriate for mixed groups
classes suitable for small groups or individuals which are tailored to a variety of specific health conditions
We know from experience and research that yoga can transform health and well-being.
Through yoga, the individual can feel empowered to take control of their physical and mental health, escaping the stresses of modern life. Yoga can also enhance a person’s sense of well-being and instil a strong dynamic of personal empowerment.
We at The Yoga for Life Project believe that yoga ought to be made available to a wider cross-section of society, so that more people can experience its potentially transformative effects on health and well-being.
We would like to see yoga classes and yoga therapy available in all hospitals, providing yoga to both patients and staff. Our goal is also to introduce yoga classes and yoga therapy to doctor’s surgeries, hospices, schools, colleges, homes for the elderly and local businesses.
We would like to build up in the community a feeling that individuals can become their own healing agents by taking control of their own health. This will help individuals through the daily stresses of life, and also create a more peaceful, connected and happier wider community. The Yoga For Life Project has been created by a community of health and yoga professionals with the joint ambition of making yoga classes and yoga therapy available in all hospitals, providing yoga to both patients and staff to improve their health and wellbeing.
We are professional, inclusive, non-judgmental, responsive, supportive, caring, compassionate, empowering, informed, inspired and committed. Our values are at the heart of everything we do.
