YOGA IMPACT is a not-for-profit organization that brings the science and art of a yoga lifestyle to under-served populations. The components of a yoga lifestyle include yoga postures, breath work, relaxation techniques, nutrition and positive mindfulness.

The mission of Yoga Impact is to bring the discipline of the science and art of yoga modalities to populations displaced from their homes, or their hearts, by acts of violence or because of special needs- people in prisons, women and children’s shelters, homeless shelters, rehab centers, group homes and transitional facilities and at risk youth. Our goals are to educate yoga teachers, facilities and communities on the needs, rewards and necessary skills.
