Happy Baby Project now hosts 76 women who are pregnant or with a child under 3. We don’t just provide the specialist yoga programme, we offer English lessons, a hot, fresh and nutritious lunch, peer support counselling and moreRead more here. 

We launched Yoga for Ourmala community classes with lululemon, The Life Centre, Hot pod Yoga and The Shala. These generous studios hold a regular class in the weekly schedule and donate the proceeds of the Yoga for Ourmala class to us. Visit their websites for more information.

We have been fortunate enough to receive funding from the European Union and Big Lottery and increasing support from the community.

…and we have been in the news: Stylist, The Independent, BBC Radio 4 and the London Evening Standard have all ran stories about our mission. Watch the videos and read the news here.
