Yoga classes and meditation courses for public housing residents
People on low incomes living in public housing often miss out on partaking in activities designed to prevent and/or manage physical and mental health such as meditation and yoga. Ironically, it is often these marginalised groups that are unable to access such programs that would benefit most from yoga and meditation.
What we offer
Melbourne Mindfulness Foundation delivers affordable and culturally appropriate meditation courses and yoga classes at a location convenient and appropriate to residents of public housing. We deliver:
- Meditation courses and yoga classes for women only
- Meditation courses and yoga classes for residents of public housing
- Meditation courses and yoga classes for Muslim women.
Courses we are currently running
We currently run a yoga and meditation program for migrant women living in the Carlton Public Housing Estate on Wednesday and Friday nights during the school term (6-7pm). To learn more about the outcomes and benefits of the Program, download the evaluation of the Mindfulness Without Barriers program delivered between 2013 – 2015.
