The New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association was formed by Dr. Stella Liu and a group of people in recovery (PIR) of mental illness in 1959.
They strive to promote mental wellness for people in recovery of mental illness and their families and the general public with the ultimate goal of equal opportunities, social inclusion, acceptance and full participation for all in the community.
Promoting "Recovery” and "Body & Mind Wellness” has always been the core values of their services. Using a wide variety of community psychiatric rehabilitation services, they endeavour to help people in recovery of mental illness lead independent lives, make their employment choices in alignment with their own interests and abilities, obtain employment in the open labour market, participate in social and leisure activities in the community and, ultimately, attain a desirable quality of living to live out a life characterized by holistic good health and body-mind equilibrium.

Andiappan Yoga Community is invited as the sole Yoga partner by New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association to promote Yoga as one of the rehabilitation methods for people in recovery from mental illness and introduce Yoga as a therapeutic and overall physical exercise.
The Yoga practices include some basic movements, breathing, relaxation, and meditation. All these elements contribute to improving physical and mental health and performance, stress and emotional responsiveness, regulation and awareness, cognitive behaviour, and elements of deeper spiritual connection such as life purpose and meaning.
Some key findings from several studies* which have used neuroimaging techniques to measure brain activity and changes in brain structure and chemical activity by practising yoga regularly:
