A 501(c)(3) serving the Greater Cleveland area and Lorain County. Spreading joy, inner-peace, and love to all by guiding the practices of yoga, breathwork and meditation. We provide free yoga to schools. We provide free yoga to caregivers of families with special needs. We also collaborate with mental health partners, to bring free yoga to those it would support most.
The practice of yoga benefits more than the self! It disperses through the family and community, to benefit everyone.
Yoga is more than just exercise! It is wonderful for mental health too! Yoga is breathing intentionally. Yoga is meditation. Yoga is mindfulness. Yoga is disciplining your mind and your body, using the tools from breath, intention, and movement. It is one of the greatest tools for physical and mental health.
We want to remove any barriers to yoga that youth, families, and other individuals might face. We offer fair pay to yoga instructors for their services. This furthers our outreach and removes the need to find hard-to-come-by volunteers.
We want to increase our free offerings, hire more instructors, and start hosting retreats for family caregivers. Please donate today to help us grow!
