WELCOME TO YOGA IN HEALTH CARE ALLIANCE

The Yoga in Health Care Alliance (YIHA) is a Registered Charity (1190806) that is enabling the UK National Health Service to provide yoga to its patients. We have developed, in partnership with the NHS, a 10-week evidence-based social prescribing Protocol that can be used by other healthcare providers in the UK and internationally. There is significant robust evidence for yoga as an effective ‘mind-body’ medicine that can both prevent and manage chronic health issues and it also delivers significant cost savings to healthcare providers. Our first job is to enable the NHS and yoga teachers to work together effectively.
