Over 300 people experience Project Yoga every week. Daily, we at Project Yoga are in awe of how each student finds their "own" practice. Many have shared their experiences with us.


Your tax deductible donation to Project Yoga ensures that our community's most vulnerable people have access to the benefits of yoga. Please give what you can: money, time, talents, or that old mat sitting in your closet.
