Yoga Program

A program for women recovering from trauma

This is a very special yoga program – held outdoors in the grounds of the sanctuary, surrounded by our beautiful herd of therapy horses.

Yoga has been shown to be effective in:

  • reducing muscular tension and pain
  • improving awareness of physical responses to internal and external stressors
  • improving ability to control physical responses to internal and external stressors
  • increasing feelings of interpersonal connection
  • increasing self-confidence and self-esteem
  • reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • improving emotional regulation
  • reducing overall PTSD symptoms


This is a beginner level yoga program with a maximum class size of six students. All equipment is provided and light refreshments are served at the end of the class.

Applications for Round 2 in 2022 will open in May.

The program will be held at the sanctuary (26 Fellowship Drive, Doonan) at 9:30am every Monday morning from Jan 31 until Apr 4 (10 weeks in total). Scholarships are available this round for those with a current Health Care Card. The cost for other participants is $100 ($10 per class) payable in advance.

This program and all scholarships have been made possible through grant funding from Queensland Community Foundation.
