In addition to our partnership programs, we are committed to programming that broadens community access to yoga through financially accessible and inclusive offerings. We facilitate drop-in community yoga classes and free park yoga around Melbourne, the details of which can be found below.
Our Program Facilitators are trained yoga and meditation teachers, with diverse specialisations including social work, education, recovery, and community development work. In addition to their personal skill sets, our facilitators have a minimum of one year yoga teaching experience and have undertaken specialised training in trauma-informed somatic therapies and/or yoga facilitation.
All of our programs, classes, events and fundraisers utilise a trauma-informed and inclusive practice framework.
