About Yoga Outreach
Our mission is to expand access to trauma-informed yoga programs to heal and connect communities. Yoga Outreach has been supporting adults and youth through trauma-informed yoga programming within community service facilities, across British Columbia, since 1996. We Serve: Women and children fleeing violence, Incarcerated & at-risk youth, Those accessing mental health services, Those recovering from addictions, Women in jail. Our weekly programs offer individuals an opportunity to heal from trauma by learning to reconnect with and feel safe within their bodies (a key element in trauma recovery), while also re-establishing a sense of social safety by participating in group classes within facilities they are already accessing and familiar with. Yoga Outreach program participants learn and practice techniques in order to cultivate safe and compassionate relationships with their bodies. Our trauma-informed programs provide participants with choice, a sense of community connection, and tools to draw from in order to self-regulate and manage daily circumstances.
