Inspired by the organization running in Heels, Yogis for Positive Change was founded in August of 2014 to serve as a rallying point and advocacy group for yogis and other peaceful warriors throughout the Metro DC area.
Our mission is to foster a sense of cooperation within the Yoga Community and encourage involvement in community service as a positive way to create societal change and mend political divides. To this end, Yogis for Positive Change sponsors Mid Atlantic Yoga Week and the Be Well Summer Wellness Campaign and posts information on events and community service/advocacy projects on the community calendar and encourages others within the community to do the same.
Yogis for Positive Change works closely with the Old Town North Community Partnership to create a more vibrant, vital, walkable community for those who work, live, or own small businesses within Old Town North Alexandria’s emerging Arts and Cultural District and with Yoga Union to support the education and professional development of Yoga Instructors throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
The Karma Project is a unique opportunity for the community to demonstrate the generosity of heart and spirit of the peaceful warrior.
