A word from Street Yoga’s Founder and our lead trainer, Mark Lilly:

“One of the things we do is work on getting ourselves to see yoga not as 90 minutes on the mat in a studio, but so much more: it could be five minutes in a hallway with one kid, helping her breathe and calm down before she meets a probation officer. It could be working with staff to help them ground and center in their own breathing. There are so many ways we use yoga in our own lives without realizing it, and a big part of the training is to help you tease out all those glories and find ways to share them with others.”
