The Quiet Quest 30 days of 30 minutes unplugged silence is complete for this year: the fundraising continues. Now it's time for us to help our veterans to find quiet as we use the money you're raising to provide tailored yoga services for them.


What is Quiet Quest?

Quiet Quest is a month long event held by The Yoga Foundation aimed at raising funds to provide yoga programs that reduce anxiety and depression for people living with hardship. It calls individuals and businesses to unplug from devices and be silent for 30 minutes a day for 30 days in October. Quiet Quest began in October 2013 and 2014 is the second year of fundraising.


This year The Yoga Foundation partnered with DefenceCare to provide yoga programs for veterans and their carers.  Donations go towards funding the development, delivery and evaluation of specially designed yoga services for veterans as well as funding evidence based programs to reduce anxiety and depression and improve quality of life amongst people who are disadvantaged.
