Through 'Soulmerge', we aim to tackle the challenges encountered by marginalized youth during their transition to adulthood, while also exploring the pivotal role that youth workers play in providing them with support. Participants will be able to integrate yoga philosophy and methodology as a tool for promoting inclusivity and well-being.

We acknowledge that our own biases and stereotypes can impede our ability to support these youths effectively. It's crucial to confront these issues and equip ourselves with tools to advocate for all young people, irrespective of their background or identity.

Research indicates that yoga can help us be more present, regulate emotions, and manage stress. By integrating yoga philosophy and methodology into European youth work, we aim to break down outdated attitudes towards yoga and make it a mainstream practice. We develop and share innovative educational approaches to better serve youth facing prejudice and discrimination. And enhance our capacities, motivation, and wellbeing as youth workers.

If your transport to and from the training stays within this budget, you pay nothing. If you go over the budget, you pay the difference. Reimbursement is only possible when we are in possession of your personal details and all original tickets/boarding passes as proof of transport costs incurred.
