I started Yoga for Humankind, a yoga school and social enterprise, because I’m deeply passionate about bringing the benefits of yoga, mindfulness and movement therapies to communities all over the world – and through these practices supporting the cultural shift we so greatly need for our individual and collective wellbeing. I also love the deeply transformative space created in the context of rich group trainings. My heart and mind are blown over and over again by the transformation, growth and love that I see in the wholehearted humans who courageously step into these containers. It’s an honour and a privilege to create and share these special containers for transformation and wellbeing.

Yoga for Humankind offers specialised trainings in trauma-informed, accessible and embodied/somatic yoga, with an outstanding international faculty of yoga and community work professionals.

The trainings focus equally on in-depth personal transformation (change begins within), and cultivating the knowledge and tools required to skillfully take yoga and embodied healing out into the world, within and beyond the yoga studio.

We currently offer a comprehensive 200hr foundational YTT, and our 30hr Trauma-Informed Yoga Foundations/Embodied Trauma-Informed Practice training for all yoga facilitators, community & health professionals, therapists and educators.
