About the Yoga Groove Foundation

YGF is founded by a group of people who have had successful careers in various industries and chose to take up teaching Yoga, Meditation and Holistic Healing because of their first hand experience of how it transformed their lives, their health, and their ability to serve others. Yoga and Meditation are strong, scientifically-documented methods for improving health and well-being, relieving stress, tension and pain, and increasing perspective, calm, and social conscience.

The guiding ethos of the festival and its foundation are those of sharing a spirit of celebration that connects body, mind and spirit within each of us, and links heart to heart in community. Team YGF has a great laugh, tons of fun, lots of zany ideas and the passion, drive and know-how to work together with lots of great people and organisations to make good things happen.

The Yoga Groove Festival brings the spirit of community and creativity in to the World by funding the Yoga Groove Foundation, an innovative new trust, giving people the tools to flourish in life, from the inside out.

The Mission

Is to introduce Yoga and Meditation to young people and communities across the UK who would not have exposure to this valuable life tool, whether that’s communities in London that are considered ‘deprived’ or rural areas where there is less ability for teachers and students to connect.

How it works

The foundation will give grants and training resources to qualified, enthusiastic Yoga Teachers who are inspired to set up projects or classes to teach young people and those less able to afford Yoga or Meditation lessons, including people with disabilities and pregnant women on low incomes. You can help make a difference through the power and potential of Yoga and Meditation by donating to the Yoga Groove Foundation, by applying to run a Yoga outreach program, or by volunteering your time, either to help with the festival, year-round events, or running the Foundation.

Support Needed

The Yoga Groove Foundation needs the support of big-hearted, smart corporations and individuals who see the value of transforming the lives of young people and those at an economic or physical disadvantage through awareness, integration and exercise of body, mind and spirit. Major donors can choose to be acknowledged at the festival, in the program, and on our web site, or they can choose to give quietly.

Date: 17th – 19th September, 2010
Hours: Gates Open at 5pm On Friday, and Close at 5pm on Sunday
Location: Seaford, East Sussex
Value: Kids under 12 come free
