Our vision encompases the yogic values of respect and compassion and the humanist ideal of unconditional positive regard. We believe in social equality and work towards an inclusive world where each individual has access to and is empowered by doing yoga.

Our Mission

We achieve this , offering a range of quality outreach projects, public and corporate classes and retreats, as well as teacher training.  We achieve this as a not-for-profit organisation by offering a range of public and workplace classesretreats, teacher training and outreach projects.
