We believe yoga is transformational

and has the power to heal and strengthen individuals and in turn, whole communities, so we work to make it accessible and affordable to practitioners of all abilities across the greater Richmond area.

Our areas of focus are instruction, outreach and ongoing teacher education and student development and support.

We accomplish our mission and engage in our community in the following ways:

  1. We established the area’s first all pay-what-you-can studio featuring a full schedule of classes that are available to all individuals regardless of income level.
  2. We have created partnerships with community groups and organizations to bring skilled yoga instruction to underserved populations with limited access. These populations are often the most in need.
  3. We work to bring continuing education to teachers in our community and to provide sources of further learning to our students.
