After many months of planning and reflection, June the 20th 2023 saw the launch of Brighton Natural Health Foundation charity (BNHF). It sprang from the closing down of the Brighton Natural Health Centre premises in Regent Street after forty years and provided us with the opportunity to develop a bold new vision.
Many of us have been aware in our own lives of the physical, mental and emotional benefits of practices such as yoga, tai chi, qigong and breathwork, and in recent years this has been confirmed by an ever-growing body of research. Yet they have largely been practised by a fairly small segment of the population. This means that many communities who suffer health challenges have been unable to afford access to some of the practices that can make a real difference to their lives.
BNHF will work to make these available to all by collaborating with partners all over the City.
