Yoga to help NHS Staff

Our incredible NHS is on its knees due to an ageing population, growing demand for services and years of underfunding. Staff have are under so much stress and pressure that 6% are off sick on any given day - a quarter for mental health reasons. The Yoga In Healthcare Alliance has worked with the Royal College of GPs to develop an accredited, evidence-based 6-week yoga programme for NHS staff to equip them with breathing and mindfulness practices to manage stress and anxiety. We need your help to deliver the programme to as many NHS staff as possible. It costs only £15 to fund a member of staff through our Yoga4NHS 6-week programme, and we continue to support them as "Breath Ambassadors", sharing simple breathing practices they learn with other colleagues suffering from stress, anxiety, and at risk of burnout. We have already delivered Yoga4NHS staff wellbeing to 376 NHS staff, with 100% saying they would recommend it to a colleague.

“Please can these sessions be prescribed and made available for all NHS staff, who regularly ignore their own needs and prioritise the needs of others. Breathing with awareness helps us trust that we are okay, and the world is okay, despite all we cannot control and all the demands. Thank you for this wonderful course”.

Because the NHS wants to spend every penny it has on patient care, NHS staff well-being is often under-resourced That's where the work of the Yoga In Healthcare Alliance comes in. Please help us to raise ten thousand pounds to support a further 600 NHS staff by helping them to develop a personalised yoga toolkit of breathing practices, mindfulness techniques, and simple yoga postures, all rooted in, and respectful of, the yoga tradition.
