YOGA FOR REFUGEES WAS A GOODY!

OURMALA helps refugees and asylum-seekers rebuild their lives. Most are recovering from atrocities such as torture, sexual violence in conflict and human trafficking, registered with the UK home Office.

We give refugees and asylum-seekers a safe space to breathe and stability through Yoga.

We connect them with critical services.

We help them fulfil their potential.
