OUR MISSION & VALUES
We want to live in a world where people experience daily wellbeing, connection and freedom – inner and outer. And we want to see a way of living together that is grounded in love, wisdom, and celebration of both our fundamental sameness and our diversity.
From our own experience, we see yoga as one of the most effective tools to make this possible, especially when coupled with cutting-edge knowledge and practice from the community, development and wellbeing sectors. This is yoga as a way of life and evolution, relevant for our world today.
And so Yoga for Humankind was born, as a yoga school and social enterprise dedicated to bringing the benefits of yoga, mindfulness and movement therapies to communities all over the world, for the greatest personal transformation and social impact possible.
We do this by:
OFFERING SPECIALISED YOGA TRAININGS
We offer high quality specialised trainings in traditional and contemporary hatha, trauma-informed and community based yoga for passionate people from all over the world to transform their own lives and share these practices in their own communities, for people with all kinds of different needs and circumstances.
Where possible, we also offer scholarship places for suitable local participants to train as yoga teachers for free.
OPERATING AS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
We commit to creating positive social impact not just through our direct work, but also by donating a minimum of 25% of profits from our trainings to community yoga and development programs around the world. This means your training fees directly support other to receive the benefits of yoga. These programs are delivered either by Yoga for Humankind teachers or affiliated and endorsed programs.
Stay tuned to find out more about our community work and the programs we are supporting.
