We are seeking your support in keeping a fundamental organization alive and working for greater health, wellness, and consciousness in the Downriver Detroit area. Formerly Rising Sun yoga studio, Yoga 4 Peace is Downriver’s home for regular yoga and meditation classes, workshops, and retreats. In 2009, Rising Sun Yoga made the transition from being a for-profit yoga studio to becoming a non-profit 501c3 operation. Since this transition, we have seen a surge of support and participation. Thank you for being a part of that!
Yoga 4 Peace, a donation-based community yoga center, is committed to granting everyone the opportunity to learn and regularly practice yoga, regardless of their ability to pay. We make yoga available to anyone and everyone wishing to experience the incredible mind-body benefits of a personal yoga practice.
With unemployment in Michigan over 15%, and the Downriver Detroit area approaching 20% unemployment, there has never been a greater need for healing in our community. We are seeking your support in sustaining and growing our yoga center. The vision we have for the future goes beyond simply keeping our doors open to continue offering yoga to all. This year, Y4P decided to further its mission by adding an outreach program to our growing list of services. CYOP (Community Yoga Outreach Project) partners with worthy organizations to bring yoga to under-served populations. Currently we are working with guidance centers, homeless shelters, title one schools and drug rehabilitation programs. We provide qualified teachers in order to service these communities. These at-risk and in-need populations of the greater Detroit area can now can experience the transformative powers of yoga at no cost.
Yoga 4 Peace needs your support now more than ever. It is our great hope to expand our mission to two new locations: Ferndale and Detroit. Please consider donating money, time, or an old mat for our outreach project. You can also support Y4P by coming to a classes and breathing in the possibilities. We have added a lot of new classes and informative workshops. Come see what’s new!
