We have built Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation (ICN 9263) to provide jobs, opportunities and a stronger voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the wellness industry.
On June 21st 2021 for International Yoga Day at Cunjurong Point on the NSW South Coast, our first undertaking is to Launch is to the Reconciliation/Reciprocity Plan (RAP) for all yogis across Australia.
We will bring our 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Yarn Circle members, [click here to be introduced]https://www.yogaaustralia.org.au/about-us/reciprocity-action-plan/) together with yoga community from across the country to launch and bring to fruition this RAP.
This event will be inclusive and broadcasted out to yoga, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.
Together we will strengthen and contribute to the national conversation about healing hearts, Caring for Country and moving towards a positive unified future.
The deep understanding of presence, listening, respect, community, oneness with Country and the strong yoking of body, Country (mind) and spirit inherent in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ way of life, and fundamental to survival of this oldest living culture on the planet, is of deep relevance to yoga practitioners.
Specific practices currently being brought to wider attention include, but are in no way limited to, mindfulness practices such as Dadirri, Yama considerations such as Kanyini, Asana practices such as Wayapa Wuurk and trauma relief practices such as We-Al-li.
By respectful listening and learning, yoga teachers and community are in a position to positively affect the gradient of respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and in this way contribute to reconciliation in this country.

Be a part of the national conversation about healing hearts, caring for Country and moving towards a positive unified future.
