Population Served: Women affected by trauma, Veterans, Prisoners, Addiction Recovery
Edinburgh Community Yoga Outreach (ECYO) is the name of our outreach project and stems from our deepest belief that the far-reaching benefits of yoga and meditation should be accessible for everyone, no matter their state of health or economic status.
We work to change the perception that yoga is for fit, bendy people who can easily touch their toes and instead focus on the therapeutic benefits that can be enjoyed by everyone. We offer a space for anyone who wants the opportunity to simply move and breathe in a way that feels good for them.
We partner with local organisations to offer yoga to women affected by trauma, military veterans, people in prison and the recovery community. We also work with children and families and offer one to one yoga therapy in some settings.
