YOGAZEIT Ltd. is a Not for Profit and Health Promotion Charity (DGR 1 status) dedicated to the prevention and management of both psychological and physical health conditions. We educate and empower Australian Youth and Seniors with Yoga and Mindfulness classes, programs, training, and professional development courses founded on the principles of education, ethics and research. In order to support our activities we rely on donations, grants, our own fundraising efforts and funding arrangements with strategic partners.
At YOGAZEIT, we believe that the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of yoga and mindfulness should be accessible to all School Communities and Aged Care facilities across Australia, regardless of financial circumstances, gender, age, backgrounds, abilities, challenges and talents.
We focus on providing accessible and research-based mindfulness and movement (Yoga) programs to promote social connection, prevent and control psychological and physical illness from early childhood, youth and the aged.
Our VISION is to provide access to yoga and mindfulness to people and high risk groups in need with a focus on:
Australian School Communities:
empowering students and educators with resources and activities they can use to reduce stress and anxiety, support resilience, physical and mental fitness, leading to a happier and healthier future.
Aged Care Facilities:
enhancing residents’ quality of life for improved mental, physical, social-emotional and intellectual wellbeing supporting healthy ageing.
Guided by research and evaluation of our programming, we’re committed to make a difference. One breath at a time!
