Inspiring good through yoga
Yoga for Good Foundation has one sole mission: create opportunities to do good for others through yoga.
Grants Each year we will award funds to inspire yoga teachers with worthy goals to do good in their community via yoga.
Grants are designed to aid organisations and individuals to achieve their goals to do good in the community.
Join our email list to stay in the loop about opportunities to do good.
Our platform offers yoga teachers, yoga-enthusiasts and beginner yogi’s content, inspiration and events to give you tools to live your best life through yoga.
We are firm believers that yoga - both the physical practice and everyday application of yoga off the mat - has the capacity to change lives for the better.
See how some of our successful grant recipients have inspired positive change in their communities.
In 2020 we were thrilled to partner with The Yoga Foundation, an Australian not-for-profit providing research-based programs to support the mental health of vulnerable people. Their mission is to create opportunities for people at risk to positively change their experience of life.
We were able to provide funding to help them deliver their programs at an incredibly difficult time for Australians. The Yoga Foundation partners with other NGOs, service providers and government agencies to provide tailored yoga programs aligned with the goals of the participants. They offer short and long-term programs that promote connection to self and others and teach breath techniques, poses, mindfulness, and meditation. Since 2009 they have worked with veterans, people experiencing homelessness, refugees and asylum seekers and people with severe and persistent mental health challenges. They are currently focused on:
- At-risk youth
- Women affected by domestic violence
- Men whose lives are at risk due to mental health challenges.
Values As an organisation these are our guideposts, our true north – these have been used to develop our content and programs.
A deep connection to one’s true self, nature and the universal elements – harmony of mind, body and nature.
Creating the time and space to physically and mentally reset through a yoga practice and mindfulness tools. Giving you a sense of liberation and a way to calm the mind and body.
Discovery + Self enquiry
Transcendence and enlightenment through knowledge. An exploration of the rich philosophy and ancient teachings that underpin the physical practice – yoga as it was intended a way of life.
Community + Connection
Our vision is to reach as many people as possible and share the wonders of yoga, we hope to bring people together and help people foster a greater connection with themselves.
