The chapter discusses the delivery and evaluation of a women-only physical activity and yoga programme designed to improve physical activity, social isolation and well-being amongst South Asian and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) migrant women living in areas of high economic deprivation. The chapter provides an accessible insight into the aims, objectives, methods and findings of the study. It provides important recommendations on how researchers and service providers can deliver culturally tailored community-based health interventions It will be demonstrated that social support such as childcare provision, child-friendly sessions and social media forums, determined by the target population can mitigate misconceptions about South-Asian and BME migrant women as being difficult to engage in health interventions.

Keywords:   South Asian migrant women, Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) migrant women, Yoga, culturally tailored, community-based health interventions
