Yoga In Action

Yoga in Action is a yoga service organization which helps people navigate life's challenges by providing accessible yoga programs to individuals in a wide variety of settings and circumstances. Our Mission is to ensure all people have access to the therapeutic benefits of yoga regardless of social, physical, and financial barriers. Our Vision is that ALL people realize their power to connect, transform, heal and thrive through yoga.

Yoga is a low cost, high impact modality that can support the mental and physical health of anyone. These programs are fueled by our dedicated staff, experienced teachers and the expertise of our partner organizations in the community. 

Our four actions are Connect, Transform, Heal and Thrive.

Connect: Yoga & Community

Our Connect programming serves as outreach to share Yoga in Action’s work with the broader community. Through community education and events as well as classes open to the public, we work to improve access to yoga and increase human connections.
