Prior to our launch in October, Anahata Yoga Centre raised money for a number of community projects.

We have been working with local GPs, organisations and charities surrounding mental health and physical recovery, providing free sessions to those in need.

We’ve also recently announced our ‘Teens for £5’ initiative, whereby you can bring your high school aged children/relatives (11-17 year olds) to join a timetabled class with you for just a small £5 cash contribution. We face so many pressures in our teenage years. Pressures from society, family, school and ourselves, and therefore we hope this initiative will provide support to this age group in our local area. This donation allow us to continue with our ongoing community projects as mentioned above.

Our fundraising during the past 6 months has also enabled us to begin offering FREE spaces within a number of our timetabled classes for those in need. These spaces are available for anyone in our local community to experience Yoga, Pilates, and Mindful Meditation and will work with respectful, mindful, compassion led practices for people looking for support with their physical, mental or emotional wellbeing…We hope this opportunity can benefit those who need support with their physical or emotional wellbeing and who have/are perhaps experiencing times of stress, anxiety, grief, vulnerability, recovery, rehabilitation and mental health issues.

Dawn Lister and Daniel Groom, Anahata’s founders, have witnessed first-hand the amazing transformative power of a mindful, compassion led yogic practise. It is possible not just to survive, you can in fact thrive despite experiencing the many challenges that modern life delivers.

We would like to thank all of our donators so far who have contributed towards our community projects.
