At WHY, we are committed to sharing and "giving back." We believe that yoga has the potential to benefit any individual, no matter their age, background, socioeconomic status, or physical and mental challenges with which they are working. Our vision is to help people learn, grow, and transform through the practice of yoga. The money we raise through our $6 Community Yoga class allows us to break down the barriers that prohibit any individual from an underserved community from practicing yoga.
Join your fellow yogis each week and experience both the joy of yoga and the satisfaction of giving. Connect with your body and nurture your spirit in an all-levels class, taught by an amazing mix of WHY instructors who donate their time and talent. All proceeds from this class will go directly to our WHY Outreach, Inc. fund, the basis for extending the reach of yoga to those that do not have access to classes.
Walk the path of yoga. Be a local hero. Come to Community Yoga and make a difference... one downdog at a time.
"Don't ask yourself what
the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
~ Howard Thurman, Philosopher
WHY Outreach, Inc. is a non-profit organization established by West Hartford Yoga whose mission is to increase the number, quality and accessibility of yoga classes and other holistic healing modalities offered to special populations. These populations include the impoverished; elderly; troubled youths; individuals living with cancer, AIDS, depression, emotional illnesses, and other chronic diseases; as well as others who face challenges with addiction, violence, and trauma. Additionally, our goal is to increase the number of qualified yoga instructors in the community who work with these populations and to improve accessibility to yoga classes for all people in the community despite geographic, financial, social or other barriers.
