To improve life skills, particularly conflict resolution, decision making, critical thinking and future planning among communities and police across Jamaica.
Yoga Angels Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit that provides life skills to children, youth and adults in underserved communities. Using the modalities of wellness, entertainment performances and the arts, our programs offer a holistic approach which integrates music, movement, the arts, and wellness modalities to facilitate healing and personal transformation. The specific activities we teach at YAF are yoga, arts and music education, dance and music classes, seminars and workshops.
The Yoga Angels Foundation: Embracing Healthy Communities
“The need to improve life skills, particularly conflict resolution, decision making, critical thinking and future planning among communities and police is undisputed. People living in high crime locations have been found to have higher rates of emotional disorders, poor sense of self, lack of empathy and are generally unable to associate the decisions they make today with their quality of life tomorrow. It is against this background that the Yoga Angels Foundation proposes its WAM Programs geared towards implementing Wellness And Mindfulness in communities using Yoga practice, Yoga Teacher Training, life skills classes, sharing alternative healing modalities and producing community family events to educate and create celebration and union between the community and police across Jamaica.
Donate to our campaigns to assist us in embracing healthy communities across Jamaica.
Help us to bring Yoga & Wellness, Yoga Teacher Training and Self Development workshops to Juvenile Correctional Facilities across Jamaica. Our program is open to Superintendents, Correctional Officers, ancillary staff, and the Youth Ward of these facilities. We are also seeking to raise funding to purchase supplies for the Yoga & Wellness Teachers, soccer supplies, balls, shoes, T-Shirts, shorts and other much needed items for the beneficiaries of this program.
Our quarterly Wellness and Music events happen in towns / community squares and centers to showcase local vendors and raise money for homeless shelters and our own Charity programs. We host vendors with agricultural & local products, Conscious Music, Healthy Food, Arts & Craft and Teacher Training performances showcasing what participants have learned in the programs accompanied by drummers and music. We need help in financing performers, assistants, yoga teachers, stage building, lighting, event media coverage etc. Donate and assist us to produce our Wellness And Music Events for 2021!
Help our organization reach youths within the communities that we serve. Youth in these communities have been taught to restrict their emotions and limit natural feelings of pain, hurt and sadness. Consequently, they live most of their lives in a hardened angry shell lashing out and causing sometimes very serious injury to themselves and others. Our program Conscious Youth is designed to help these males to embrace their emotions.
