Yes! This means that, fundamentally, Supply Yoga has been designed to fulfil a social purpose.
Since the very beginning, we have been in pursuit of democratic access to effective and inclusive wellness practices for our whole community, particularly folks who don’t feel represented by, safe or a sense of belonging in commercial wellness environments.
We partner with a number of local and national charities and grass roots community organisations that support people living in social isolation, living with or at risk of long term mental and physical health challenges. We use the money that our customers, corporate partners and funders invest in us to develop appropriate health and wellbeing programmes for the folks that access support from our partners.
It’s a cyclical model, the more you practice with us, the deeper a social impact we can make. Your purchase with us is powerful, it’s a vote for an organisation that aims to deliver a positive impact on the mental and physical health of every body, regardless of shape, size, orientation, ability, health or wealth.
At the moment, given the limitations of social distancing, we’re working with some of our partners remotely via Zoom and Youtube Live – each week we gather virtually with the extraordinary people of East London Cares and The Bromley by Bow Centre’s mental health support programme. This Summer we’ll also be resuming our programme in partnership with Hackney Migrant Centre.
