THE YOGA IMPACT CHARITY APPROACH:

 

The Yoga Impact Charity has been providing inclusive, evidence based trauma informed yoga in the community to thousands of people since 2015. We recognise the powerful impact that the practice of Yoga can have on psychological and physical wellbeing and the growing evidence base in this space.

 

Our methodology combines Yoga, Somatic Therapy and Psychology and is based on the latest research and our program evaluations.

Our approach is trauma informed and recognises that trauma profoundly impacts our psychological and physiological composition and that puts people at risk of re- traumatisation, mental illness and chronic disease. As yoga teachers we want to be aware of how we can create a safe space for people under those circumstances, facilitate a safe environment for healing and be mindful of how we relate to

people.

After completing this program, you will be ready to lead evidence based Trauma Informed Yoga Programs in your community. Examples of our current programs include:

 

  • Integrating Trauma Informed Principles to Yoga classes at a Studio 

  • A yoga program with newly arrived refugee children

  • A yoga for Aboriginal foster carers

  • A yoga program for survivors of family violence 

  • A yoga program for asylum seekers at a detention centre

  • A yoga program for mental health workers 

  • A yoga program at an Australian Defence Force Barracks 

  • Integrating yoga into your work as a psychologist, doctor or nurse  

  • A yoga program for refugee women healing from torture co-facilitated with a Psychologist

  • A yoga program for men in a maximum security prison

  • A yoga program with frontline healthcare workers
