Introduction to Yoga Care Wales
Yoga Care Wales is a new non-profit organization that has come together following a few community projects undertaken by Yoga Satsanga Ashram director and founder Yogachariya Jnandev here in West Wales. Since Jnandev came to the UK he has shared some of his in depth authentic knowledge on the subject of Yoga.
Our particular areas of interest are Yoga for Kids and Yoga therapy or assisted personalized Yoga for those with physical limitations, which may be structured as a ‘prescriptive’ set of practices for individual needs according to medical conditions or hands on gentle assistance if needed and requested.
We are keen to be able to offer short courses of Yoga in Schools as some of the techniques in Yoga are particularly good for managing stress, anxiety, concentration and memory many of the issues young pupils battle with in Schools. By introducing some simple techniques pupils could cope a lot better with the school environment and times of particular stress such as examinations. It is also very good to introduce to primary school children as another ‘sports’ option. As a Yoga teacher training school we would like schools to consider training the appropriate staff in Kids Yoga and bring aspects of this into their Physical education sessions. In India Yoga is part of the daily curriculum, which is something Wales should think about for high achieving pupils.
Jnandev has been working with voluntary organisations such as Arts Care Wales, specifically working with mental health and then was able to run several 7-week courses with Green links for people with work limiting health conditions, which was very successful in improving the lives and well-being of the attendees.
Jnandev has also been able to do some taster Yoga classes in some of the local meithrins and Schools which has had great feedback. Following all this and suggestions from students and those on our Yoga teacher training courses a group of us came together and it was decided that we should establish an organization solely to focus on this type of work with people using Yoga as a tool for health and well-being. Hence Yoga Care Wales has been created!
We hope we will get the support of the community and are looking to raise funds and run several projects for the benefit of the community.
