We are currently looking for one or two new committee members, including a chairperson, to help support the development of MYA. If you are passionate about bringing the benefits of yoga and mindfulness to those in our community who would not normally access them, then please consider joining our committee.

Power of Being Present

Steve was interviewed on BBC Radio Jersey on 18th December about ways of coping in these difficult times. He spoke of the power of staying present with great tips on how to manage this.



Please support on of our teachers, Steve, who is running his first trail half marathon to raise funds for MYA.

MYA sessions at the Self Care event

We are really please to to be taking part in this Self Care event. Yoga with Kate will be offering an introduction to Hatha Yoga, followed by the opportunity to do a body scan and compassion practice with Carolyn. These sessions are free, however, we would really welcome donations for MYA so that we can continue to offer free mindfulness and yoga to the people who can not normally access them. We will also be available throughout the day, for you to come and talk to us and find out more.

Teaching during Covid-19

Although we had to cut down on our teaching we still managed to run some courses on line and are becoming much more skilled with zoom and other platforms.


Our first quarter

We started teaching at the end of January 2020 and in the first quarter  we ran 6 courses with 138 attendances in total.

“This offers a great way to destress and look after my physical and mental health”

In November 2019 some of our teachers completed a Accessible Yoga teacher training course. This included chair, wall and floor yoga making yoga accessible to all.
