Our Mission

Roots2Rise makes yoga available and accessible to everyone. 

We have worked and volunteered in a variety of settings, with a variety of populations. Prisons, shelters, Philadelphia park and rec. centers, yoga studios, gyms, schools, local businesses and community organizations. What we have learned is that the practice of yoga, the practice of mindfulness is beneficial regardless of location. We know that when we make a commitment to serve others, to contribute to the empowerment of each individual and to a be conduit for the growth of communities we help shape what is possible. Change happens when we choose to be of service, when we step outside of what is comfortable and when we make a choice to hold space for the greatness of others.
