Natural Awakenings Richmond

Project Yoga Richmond Launches Online Initiative

Wellness educator Nitika Achalam has stepped into the executive director role at local nonprofit Project Yoga Richmond (PYR) and moved up the roll-out of their newly available selection of virtual experiences amidst the current health advisory. PYR’s pay-what-you-can model is dedicated to making yoga affordable and accessible to everyone in and around Richmond.

The selection of community programs available to the public is thanks to passionate PYR ambassadors that lend their expertise to lead the sessions. With their new subscription-based service connecting people with virtual classes, these yogis have the opportunity to teach during a time when in-person classes are not possible.

Achalam has been guiding yoga sessions since 1999 and served on the board for PYR since 2016. In addition to multiple yogic certifications, she has training and expertise in anthropology, botanical arts and energy healing.
