Social Prescribing

As part of our values and social mission our studio is inclusive and accessible, with a diverse student base.

We believe yoga and wellbeing should be accessible for all.

 

In 2024 through funding we have received, we launch our social prescribing, this is a service in which you can self refer or be referred by a health practitioner to receive 8 weeks of classes and a 1:1 consultation with one of our professional teachers. This is to support your health and wellbeing beyond the current medical systems.

We currently offer a range of free weekly community classes

SOCIAL PRESCRIBING

Our new social prescribing offers you 8 weeks of wellbeing classes and 1:1 consultations with our professional teachers, to discover what your health needs are and to create a program that supports you best. This is a service in which you can self refer or be referred by a health practitioner.

 

Yoga and mindfulness based practices provide many benefits for:

Physical, mental and emotional health.

 

A regular practice over eight + weeks

can lead to reductions in:

Anxiety, stress,

Pain,

Hypertension,

Musculoskeletal Conditions,

Metabolic Disorders,

Menopause Symptoms and more.

 

And supports the fostering of community and connection.
 


The best person to understand your needs is you! We are working with local agencies and local community groups to ask them to refer to us anyone who thinks they would benefit from 8 weeks of targeted wellbeing activities. 

After an initial 1:1 consultation you will be able to attend a free wellbeing class once a week for 8 weeks, along with receiving regular check in support from one of our team.

At HYC, we know that life can be challenging and that's why we want to offer a helping hand....
