Yogazeit is a registered Health Promotion Charity dedicated to promoting the well-being of vulnerable communities through evidence-based Mindfulness and Movement practices. In collaboration with Indigenous Elders, leaders, and communities from various Language Groups across Western Australia, we have developed a specialised program specifically designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This program offers the opportunity to become certified youth yoga teachers and contribute to the social-emotional well-being of Indigenous youth. One breath at a time.

The training will be held at Karijini Eco Resort on Banjima Country

The training will be led by Yogazeit’s Indigenous Outreach Lead, Sharnell Avery, a proud Murri Gamilaraay and Maori woman, and co-facilitated by certified Youth Yoga Teacher Heidi Mippy, a proud Noongar Thiin-Mah Warriyangka woman.

Successful applicants will learn breathing techniques, mindful movement adapted from yoga, relaxation scripts, mindfulness activities and participate in partner and group work.

Participants will leave the training with practical ways to combat stress, improve social- emotional skills, support learning and improve mental, cultural, physical and spiritual health.

The Deadly Minds education and training camp is a fully funded program to support capacity building for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Pilbara. There are no costs for the training and education.

All accommodation costs and meals will be provided, including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. However, participants are advised to bring their snacks for personal consumption during the program.

 Transfer to and from the Deadly Minds camp. Participants are responsible for arranging their transportation.

Deadly Minds’ mindfulness activities are adaptable – we invite students to feel empowered to adjust the names and activities to suit their country and community. Participants will learn how to make mindful movement fun for the mob they’re teaching so it feels important and physically, mentally and culturally safe.
