Within this document you find techniques and videos with practice of kundalini yoga, as introduced at the training of youth workers aiming to introduce these practices to youth work.

Aims of the tool

The aim is to deconstruct stereotypes and prejudices youth workers experience working with marginalized groups of young people, second, to increase their wellbeing, third, to empower youth workers, fourth, to develop new innovative practices for working with young people.

Description of the tool

We believe there is a need for transformation. As youth workers we are supposed to provide fair treatment to every young person we are working with. We believe yoga is a great tool to “unlearn” the social patterns we learnt throughout our life, such as stereotypes and prejudices, and acquire neutrality towards diverse groups of people as an alternative. This will lead to increased
capacities of youth workers, but also motivation and wellbeing.

The easiest way to learn new tools is to learn them physically in person. In this case new tools are yoga and meditation.

YO(uth)GA was a training course taking place in Czech Republic on 6 to 14 September 2021.

This is a report summarizing some of the practices as introduced during the youth workers mobility.

The project was cofunded by Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
