Yoga Mandala Project is a non profit organization that provides psycho-social support and wellness through the physical and mental health benefits of Yoga and TRE (Trauma Release Exercise) to those displaced or affected by war and conflict.
We volunteer as Yoga teachers within refugee communities, working in partnership with local community organisations in Ireland and internationally .
We also work to establish sustainable volunteer programs with Yoga teachers in each locality, by providing training for teachers and community support workers in trauma informed Yoga practice, teaching and protocol.
We aim to offer services that will help to build emotional resilience, providing simple self care protocols that can easily be utilised to help relieve trauma related conditions such as stress, tension, anxiety and depression.
