at-risk youth

We at YD are so honored to be sponsoring our second Street Yoga training in NYC. We did our own training with founder Mark Lilly back in July 2011 and learned so much, not only about bringing yoga to at-risk youth, but how to do our own work internally, asking the important questions in preparation, to build a strong foundation from which to serve.
