About Our Needs
Our mission is to expand access to trauma-informed yoga programs to support healing and connection.
Yoga Outreach partners with volunteer yoga instructors, community organizations, social service agencies, and prisons, to provide trauma-informed yoga programming to often overlooked adults and youth.
Yoga Outreach programs are strengths-based and trauma-informed serving adults and youth facing challenges with mental illness and mental health, addiction, poverty, violence, trauma, and imprisonment.
In addition, we provide training, ongoing mentorship, and community building opportunities to yoga teachers and community support professionals to enhance the delivery of yoga in these settings.
Donations to Yoga Outreach provide support to develop new programs, ongoing program coordination, additional program props (new mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets), and outreach.
Donations also provide training scholarships to compete our trainings including the Yoga Outreach Certification™ Program: A 200 Immersion which provides and education on bringing trauma-informed yoga into social service settings.
