The project in a few words

The YoGender project focuses on the reconnection with our bodies and spiritualities through body expression practices such as yoga, dance, or taekwondo. This will be accompanied by other types of artistic activities, thus creating a safe space to exchange ideas about gender issues and non-violent communication.

So, if you feel you can offer something, this is the place to do it: if you see the possibility, it is your responsibility to make it happen!

Physical activities will be complemented by poetic, musical and nonviolent expressions spaces toward the collective construction of a social environment free of discrimination, inequality, and violence,  informing and reflecting with a critical mind about gender policies, gender studies, and feminist agenda while nourishing body and mind with positive practices, from food to sport, to relationships, to nature.

Main Objectives

  • Enhance knowledge about different artistic and body expressions, manual works, and mental health preservation techniques,

  • Enhance knowledge about nature and the environment,

  • Allow participants to reconnect with the surrounding environment, with nature, and with themselves,
