Street Yoga provides yoga and wellness classes to youth and families struggling with homelessness, poverty, addiction, abuse, and trauma. The classes take place at sites already serving these populations, such as shelters and drop-in centers. Street Yoga has been operating in Portland since 2002 with very positive results and recently opened a Seattle branch. Participants report on our quarterly evaluations that they feel more focused, less stressed, and happier after participating in Street Yoga programs.

"A lot of people up here are depressed from drugs and want to get in touch with themselves. And that's what yoga's doing." - A Street Yoga practitioner
