Yoga For All at Project Yoga Richmond

Yoga has the power to heal individuals, and in turn, whole communities. Local non-profit, Project Yoga Richmond (PYR), strives to make yoga accessible and affordable to all by working with under-served populations through its community outreach programs and donation-based classes. PYR aims to serve every body in the Richmond area.

Each month, PYR’s team of dedicated volunteers, instructors and ambassadors provides instruction and assistance to more than 1,200 individuals.

Their community outreach includes programs designed for people with autism, seniors, adults and teens with special needs, youth with mental health concerns, people dealing with addictive behaviors, adults with developmental disabilities and survivors of sexual and domestic violence. These classes provide all of the same physical, mental and spiritual benefits as the PYR studio classes, but are tailored to effectively serve each student regardless of ability.
