The collaborations with the Healthcare Centres include: 
– Hatha yoga lessons for patients and medical/non-medical personnel;
– Informative sessions about the benefits of Yoga and Yoga Therapy for health;
– Monitoring and evaluation.

Collaborations with healthcare centres

How does it work?
At first, the staff of the healthcare centre identifies the potential beneficiaries of Yoga. Then, YIH organises the classes and provides: trained Yoga teacher, pedagogic support and equipment.

Moreover, we propose Yoga classes to the healthcare staff according to their availability. In this way, they can better understand the practice and foster well-being at work.
All costs are covered by the NPO.

So far, we have been collaborating with three healthcare centres:

  1. Wijkgezondheidscentrum De Vaart in Vilvoorde,
  2. Wijkgezondheidscentrum De Brug in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean 
  3. Maison de Santé ATLAS in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode.
Our collaborations with those healthcare centres started in September 2020 and have been carried out over 3 months. The yoga sessions took place once a week with alternate female-only and gender-mixed groups. The yoga teachers delivered also lessons for medical and non-medical staff. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the yoga sessions have been carried online and the pilot project has been prolonged until the end of the year (2020).
