The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others Mahatma Gandhi

Yoga can be more than simply a practice at a studio and on a mat. At Connecticut Power Yoga, we believe that yoga is also about giving back. Being a service to others, is a powerful practice that benefits both the giver and the receiver. Connecticut Power Yoga is always looking for opportunities where we as a studio, and as a community can come together and be in service to others. Connecticut Power Yoga also has a number of ongoing projects that we support and champion.

Africa Yoga Project

ayp

The Africa Yoga Project (AYP) was created in 2007 to train youth and build the wellness industry so that previously un- or under-employed youth from marginalized communities earn a self-sustaining income as community leaders who have the ability to build healthy, wellness-promoting communities. Aimee and Tim were first introduced to AYP while training with AYP co-founders, Baron Baptiste and Paige Elenson. These meetings sparked a commitment to being a part of what AYP is up to.

Founded in 2009, Future 5 is a local organization that helps motivated, low-income high school students in Stamford connect to their full potential. Their goal is to support their high school student members and connect them to their community, to coaches, to college, to careers, and most importantly, to themselves. At CTPY, we believe in the power of community, and are thankful for the opportunity to be able to bring yoga to these students.
