Since we opened our doors, in 2011, we have offered over a thousand Free or By donation Yoga and Meditation classes. We have given Hundreds of workshops and events; Hosted over 150 Volunteer teachers introduced thousands of students to yoga, and we helped transform the many lives of the community that we serve.
The practice of yoga is a practice of intimacy. The process of reaching into the physical, psychological and other interdependent sheaths of the postures wakes us up to the intelligence of life.
Through becoming intimate with the breathing patterns, bandhas and stillness of meditative awareness we wake to our lives and realize the possibility of serving others. Yoga Philosophy and practice, juxtaposed with Buddhism and western Psychology gives us the tools for personal healing and social action.
Yoga for the People offers a program of yoga that is accessible to everyone by offering donation classes and through fostering a safe environment that seeds self-exploration and transformation. We offer a sacred space for people to gather and hit the mat or cushion with dedicated and experienced instructors. Through this practice, we can truly awaken into a conscious living. It all starts from within. Power to the People!

"A Sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society. Mindfulness is to protect ourselves and others. A good Sangha will lead us in the direction of harmony and awareness. The substance of the practice is most important. The forms can be adapted." ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
