awakened the 1st time I stepped on the mat; my heart
began the healing process. For the 1st time I was
discovering who I was and who I could be. I grow in
this knowing every day. My life changing experience
with the practice of Yoga compelled me to create Yoga

organization that teaches people in under-served
communities the art of self healing, self talk and self
love through the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness. Our
mission is to equip individuals with the tools to
