When we gather to practice yoga on a mission, we have the power to change lives! This fun, inspiring community event will feature renowned teachers from across New England including - Jacqui Bonwell, Jen Queally, Katie Beane + Terry Lacy..

Our goal is to raise $35,000 and each participant is asked to create a fundraising page and raise at least $199 from friends and family before April 30th. This is yoga… on a mission!

Special Thanks to Our Sponsors:
Sea Change Yoga is a nonprofit yoga service organization based in Portland, ME. We bring the evidence based practices of yoga and meditation to those who have experienced trauma, are under-served and marginalized, and in need of the emotional regulation and increased physical and mental health that yoga and meditation practice provides.
We currently teach 24 trauma-informed yoga classes each week to over 250 students at residential treatment facilities, substance use recovery centers, correctional institutions, and others.
Our trauma-informed teaching strategies are designed to be uniquely effective for students with trauma in their background. We are modifying the elements of traditional yoga to facilitate mindfulness, maximize tolerance, build empowerment, and cultivate a more positive relationship to one’s body.
These simple, yet powerful tools of transformation reduce stress and anxiety, support the addiction recovery process, help break the cycle of substance abuse and incarceration, and so much more.
