MissioN statement

Social innovation

We strongly believe that positive practices, supported by evidence, should be translated into policies in order to foster social innovation.

A Belgian model

The vision of Yoga in Healthcare (YIH) is to create a relevant model for a more holistic health system in Belgium.  By means of making Yoga more accessible, we commit to promote health and well-being.

A wordldwide network

YIH is inspired by initiatives such as The Minded Institute, that work hands in hands with the UK National Health Service through the Yoga in Healthcare Alliance.

Many initiatives are taking place around the world to foster the integration of Yoga in the healthcare setting, each model adapting to the specific social, medical and cultural context and representing an example for other initiatives.
