The Anahata Yoga Health & Education Trust has been established as a nonprofit organisation, enabling us to expand our capacity in sharing the yogic lifestyle for the well-being of individuals and families of all walks of life.
Our vision includes promoting health, personal growth and wellness. We are committed to providing experiential learning opportunities and accessible yoga education for all. We are actively working towards preservation of the natural environment and sustainable development of the retreat infrastructure.
Under the Trust we seek to live the yogic lifestyle and share our knowledge with all who come to Anahata. We are committed to practicing and teaching Yoga and living ecologically and sustainability. We endeavour to be able to include all levels of the socio-economic population and are in the process of developing a scholarship program.
2021: Youth Yoga & Wellbeing Programme at Golden Bay High School
Anahata Yoga Health & Education Trust is delighted to announce its milestone collaboration with Creating Balance NZ and Golden Bay High School to bring the benefits of yoga and meditation to youth in our community. AYHET is honoured to sponsor Youth Yoga & Wellbeing, a year-long programme initiated by Priyadhara of Creating Balance NZ and enthusiastically endorsed by Golden Bay High School. Our combined efforts aim to provide teenagers with empowering tools to help them build resilience, confidence, and to trust and express their unique and creative potential. Weekly classes will create a space where they can learn ways to nourish their being; feel relaxed, good and healthy in their body; calm the mind; feel clear and focused; an opportunity to explore techniques that develop emotional understanding and self-regulation — a well rounded community initiative to support teenagers thrive in life!
