We run regular classes designed for people recovering from mental illness
Day to Day Living
Flourish Australia run a Day to Day Living program for people transitioning from institutional care back in to the community.
As part of this program and for the past five years, we have taught yoga classes at two of their Sydney sites. Evaluations are part of the design of this program and the results revealed participants:
felt more relaxed;
were better able to manage feelings of anxiety and stress;
had better control over their thoughts;
increased energy and focus.
In 2013 we collaborated with South East Sydney Area Health Service, PHaMS and New Horizons to start a weekly class at Redfern Community Health Centre.
The aim is to support mental health and facilitate social inclusion by providing access to an appropriate yoga class.
