How We Serve

Our highly-trained instructors offer a breath-centered yoga practice based on proven methods to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, activate the relaxation response, lower blood pressure, and reduce stress.

Where We Serve

We facilitate classes and workshops in residential treatment centers, PHP and IOP programs, recovery residencies, collegiate recovery clubs, alternative high schools, detention centers, prisons, and through community partners.

Our Trainings

We train yoga teachers, educators, social workers, counselors and anyone interested in sharing mind body practices. Our trauma-sensitive approach is inclusive, accessible and offers tools that build resilience in the face of life’s challenges. Our trainings prepare you for sharing these practices with others.

How You Can Help Our Mission!

“The instructor has helped me connect my mind with my body… I’ve always lived in my mind while I abused my body. Yoga is a huge part of my recovery and has given me the strength to work through my demons.”
