Meet the founder:


Ebony Smith aka The Ghetto Guru 


Born and raised in the inner city of Dallas, Texas! I grew up with a secret eating away at my soul. And we all know…secrets are the perfect recipe for a very turbulent childhood. I was molested by a woman in the neighborhood at a young age, I grew up in silences. Unable to express how I felt, lacking self regulation skills. In turn, is the “the bad”. 


I became very disenchanted with school. My cry for help showed up in the form of misbehaving and being disruptive, it created the attention I longed for. I spent most of my time suspended or in my regular seat in what they call ISS (In House Suspension), “kid jail”.

I became very rebellious, lacking the skills to make choices that would serve my life in positive manner. These poor decision making skills tainted my life well into adulthood. I became an alcoholic, downing my sorrows in vodka. At the age of 29, after being married to a man I didn’t even know, looking for love in all the wrong places. I found out I was pregnant with my 1st child Zoe. Wanting to have a natural child birth, my Douala advised me to start practicing Yoga.

My soul was awakened the 1st time I stepped on the mat; my heart began the healing process. For the 1st time I was discovering who I was and who I could be.  I grow in this knowing every day. My life changing experience with the practice of Yoga compelled me to create Yoga N Da Hood 501(c)3 nonprofit,  wellness outreach organization that teaches people in under-served communities  the art of self healing, self talk and self love through the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness. We offer free Yoga and Meditation classes in a hood near you.  Our mission is to equip individuals with the tools to empower their own life.
