State of Being

Innovating trauma-informed and community-based yoga


Who is State of Being?

State of Being is a registered health promotion organisation, based in Victoria. We support community health and wellbeing through the provision of skilful healing-centred yoga and movement programs. In partnership with public and community service providers, we deliver mental health-aware and evidence-based programs around the state.

Who do we work with?

We currently partner with the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Save the Children, Prahran Hub, STREAT, Foundation House, the YWCA and Frontyard Youth Services to deliver weekly trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness classes. As we receive no government support, each of these programs are funded entirely by community contributions.  

Where will the money go?

For 2020, we have secured funding for seven of our ten community programs, which is great news! However, three of our programs remain unfunded: the Children's Yoga Program at Cubbies, Women's Yoga Circle at YWCA, and our Parents Yoga Program at Prahran Youth Services. These  programs provide the only opportunity for participants to access trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness classes in their community.

If you would like to support the continuation of these unfunded programs, you can give the gift of yoga this holiday season by making a tax deductible donation. 

100% of donated funds are directed towards facilitation and delivery materials. All donations are tax deductible and accompanied by a receipt.
