Urban Male Leadership Academy

The Puerto Rican Cultural Heritage House in Manhattan sponsored the Urban Male Leadership Academy at Baruch College during it’s Health Week Intro to Yoga Program. With the goal of introducing yoga to male students, the event was a huge success. Manduka supported the effort by donating 25 mats to help with the facilitation of the program. Norma Lecaroz from Cultural Heritage House shared, “with a total of 20 students, the response was positive and their evaluation sheets showed the interest from the triangle pose, to the breathing, and relaxation exercises. It felt reassuring that young men can do well to learn to release stress in a positive way.”
