Linda Germanis / Yoga Fusion, Yoga in Action for Post-Conflict Reconciliation
Yoga Fusion is a research project aiming at bringing psychological and physical health to people affected by trauma in conflict areas. Refugees, war victims, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) suffer more and more of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) being deprived of their health and ability to contribute to their family and community. Through yoga therapy for PTSD and community workshops to map social conflicts and needs, Yoga Fusion aims at reintroducing community health, participation and justice through an accessible, low cost and sustainable tool: yoga. Working on the ground in conflict affected areas, Yoga Fusion brings new perspectives on health and ‘consciousness-raising’ at individual and social level.
