We are a non-profit community of yoga practitioners from all backgrounds and abilities who have come together as a movement to inspire & empower each other without judgement and with compassion.
The word Yoga means 'Union'. We have united to be of service to others.
Our network of community ambassadors & activists are committed to raising awareness and funding in support of our specialist trauma informed yoga programmes and registered charity partners.
We want to make the healing potential of yoga accessible to all while supporting the most vulnerable in society within a diverse, welcoming environment of safety, inclusivity, dignity and empowerment.
Social justice is at the heart of our yoga and we strive to remove all barriers to access so that all may lead happy, fulfilling and dignified lives.
