Empowering Mental Health
With thanks to our funders and community partners, Yogazeit will empower young Australians in the Kimberley region to embody mindfulness and movement (yoga) in their daily lives.
Project Mindful Hearts (Kimberley Outreach) will provide a HEALTH and WELLBEING program to remote Kimberley communities and support teachers, youth workers and community ambassadors to use curriculum aligned brain breaks and mindful movement to encourage physical health, mental wellness and mindful education.
Mindful Hearts will build upon Yogazeit’s culturally relevant Yoga and Mindfulness Education project, completed in June in the remote Ngaanyatjarra Lands region. Mindful Hearts will be fun and engaging while providing two-way learning activities supporting breathing, movement and relaxation to foster awareness for mental health and joy of movement for all classrooms from Kindy to Year 12.
Please complete the EOI form on the right so we can get in touch with you.
How we support you:
- Trauma-informed Mindful Movement Professional Development Workshops
- Yoga Yarning Training for AEO and community members
- Community Immersions
- School Incursions
- Culturally relevant Curriculum, Lesson Plan and Resources (in local language)
- Consultation and Engagement with Community
- Career Pathways for High School students
- Community Mindful Movement Events and activities (place-activation and engagement)
Rather than being just another western model which is squeezed into an indigenous context, Yogazeit’s projects are developed with a clear focus on collaboration. Probably the best indication of the efficacy of Yogazeit Mindful Movement is the enthusiastic take-up of students from all our campuses at the Ngaanyatjarra Lands School in 2021!

Resilience – Life Skills – Wellbeing
By learning tools to live mindfully, we can support ourselves and others. This program will see an increase in MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS, focus and attention at school, decreased stress and the ability to manage our emotions – ultimately helping us to cope in difficult times.
We’re looking forward to support you and your community!
Your Yogazeit team!
