PROJEKT YOGA e.V. is a non-profit organisation from Hamburg that has made it its mission to offer yoga and meditation for ALL people. Among other things, unaccompanied underage refugees receive free yoga lessons. The unifying power of the common practice becomes apparent; nationalities and differences do not play a role here.

We have been supporting PROJEKT YOGA since 2015 and are very pleased to be able to contribute to the continuous expansion of the project with financial donations and the provision of YOGISTAR products. In the migrant classes at the Hamburg City Süd H9 vocational school, which were founded a few years ago, more than 45 unaccompanied refugee youths are currently receiving yoga and meditation lessons, which have become a regular part of the school's physical education curriculum. Fortunately, there are now also a large number of young girls among the participants. YOGISTAR bears a share of the costs for the coordination and deployment of the yoga teachers, which is made possible by the purchase of our products. Through the continuous cooperation between students and teachers with dedicated yoga teachers and many hard-working helpers, the Migrant Classes project has been able to firmly establish itself at the school. The response and development of the young people involved is overwhelming.

In addition, through PROJEKT YOGA, yoga is regularly practised together for the young people - who have come to Germany from Afghanistan, Syria, Egypt and Somalia, among others - on the so-called COMMUNITY DAYS. In addition, cooking classes are held, job placements are supported and positive integration into the local society is promoted in a sustainable way. Yoga and meditation classes for all on a donation basis in Hamburg and Ingolstadt, which open and fill hearts under the name COMMUNITY YOGA, make the cooking classes for the young people possible.

A unique project that connects people and creates true community! We will of course keep you informed about all further developments.
