Yoga Mandala Project is a nonprofit organization that specializes in using yoga as trauma-relief exercise in several locations around Jordan, including Collateral Repair Project’s Community and Family Resource Center. The main mission of Mandala Project is to create sustainable volunteer yoga programs in refugee communities. The trainers teach members of the community to lead the courses, so that refugees can teach the classes themselves and pass on the knowledge they gained. Yoga classes offer a positive coping mechanism and trauma relief.
