Message from our founder David Ellams BSc(Hons): "Please help spread the word about our classes and yoga teacher training courses since Y4A really needs this money to continue running since funds are very tight at the moment. Any help with fund raising, donations on our crowd funding page or volunteers would be really appreciated. Many thanks and blessings."
