Several of our teachers are engaged in activities that promote the practice of yoga to the community at large and to specific populations: Mike and Sarah Keenan, have been hosting free yoga classes in the courtyard of their business, the Juice Laundry, during the summer; Kelli Block has been working with survivors of sexual assault; all of our teachers have taught classes as fundraisers or as outreach and are, as individuals, engaged in the community. yoga charl
