Who We Are
We started Mindful Warriors as a passion project.
After experiencing the transformative benefits of yoga and mindfulness ourselves - from improved physical and mental health to over all wellbeing - we wished we had found yoga earlier in our lives as children.
Stevan, Lead Teacher and Co-founder of Mindful Warriors would often meet people who have come to Yoga to address a particular concern related to the mind or body. From these encounters an understanding was born that if people had these great tools from an early age, they could maintain their own optimal balance throughout their lives and be empowered by yoga techniques to look after their physical and mental health. In this way Yoga can be a preventative practice for maintaining mind and body harmony.
It is our goal to share the highest quality Yoga classes available to school children across the country at the most affordable cost possible. We believe in making a difference to the world by empowering young people to feel good and lead their most balanced lives.
