Healing Yoga Foundation (HYF) is a nonprofit service, support, education, and resource organization dedicated to health, healing, and personal development through yoga. We are a collective of experienced, highly trained teachers committed to serving all who wish to benefit from yoga by respecting and meeting the needs of the individual regardless of physical capability, health, background, age, experience, or financial means.
Our mission is to bring the healing benefits of yoga to those who would otherwise not have access to it, and to empower our students to heal, transform, and live more fully and freely, no matter what the circumstance.
What We Offer
- Personalized, therapeutic yoga practices and yoga therapy designed to address each student’s unique needs. Find a teacher and get started!
- Opportunities to deepen your studies through continuing education, workshops, trainings, and mentorship in support of both personal and professional development.
- Community outreach classes for underserved or at-risk populations. We can support you in creating classes in your area through mentorship and/or fiscal sponsorship.
- Resources for additional support, including articles, videos, practices, inspiration, and links to other support organizations.
What Makes Us Different
HYF’s comprehensive approach and personalized application of yoga tools are especially beneficial for people facing health challenges. We offer individualized yoga programs to support health, reduce symptoms, and aid recovery from injury, illness, and chronic conditions—from physical pain and discomfort to a range of emotional or mental stresses and concerns.
HYF is committed to supporting you on your health journey through our principles of practice:
- Respect every person as an individual with unique circumstances, needs, goals, and abilities, and care for the whole person instead of just the diagnosed condition.
- Recognize that the human system is comprised of several overlapping, interrelated dimensions—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual—and address the needs of the whole person at every level.
- Honor each individual’s healing process and unique experience, and create a highly personalized approach to healing and wellness.
- Empower individuals to be active participants in their own healing process and nurture their own well-being, in recognition of the fact that healing comes from within, rather than from an outside source.
- Provide a safe, inclusive, caring, and supportive environment for individuals and communities to live more fully and freely.
