Yoga Gardens

Once I completed my Yoga Teacher Training program, I knew I wanted to use my teaching to serve a community that might not otherwise have yoga available. After some diligent Googling, I came across Yoga Gardens, a non-profit based in the West side of Chicago whose mission is to “aid and uplift communities in impoverished Chicago neighborhoods by teaching & practicing peace, and by making healthy and nutritious foods available. Through yoga, meditation, healthier food options, and beautifying the neighborhood,  we relieve stress and disease in areas where these difficulties are most prevalent.” When I realized that their organization was serving the neighborhood many of my high school students lived in, I was sold. Today I am proud to be both a yoga teacher and a board member of this organization and look forward to watching its impact grow.
