OUR Mission

yoga is a survival skill

 Yoga is for everyone. By taking classes at Yoga District, you’re not only making it possible for us to offer affordable classes in inclusive spaces–you’re also helping our 501c3 non-profit, Yoga Activist, support free yoga programs for trauma survivors around the world.

Yoga Activist

giving back – locally and globally

Yoga Activist is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that builds connections between qualified yoga instructors, social service providers, and communities that have limited access to yoga. We provide free trainings to yoga instructors so they learn how to share yoga in diverse settings with trauma sensitivity and inclusivity. We also donate mats and provide other support to yoga programs around the world.

Get involved

Want to volunteer or donate?

Yoga Activist, with the support of Yoga District, directly coordinates programs to share yoga with communities experiencing homelessness, survivors of trauma, youth, people in incarceration settings, veterans, people residing at assisted living and senior centers, and persons in treatment for addiction and patients mental/physical conditions. Get involved with us! There are many ways to serve with us, whether you’d like to teach, help us ship mats to yoga outreach programs in need, or help us collect mats for donation.
