Our Mission

Roots2Rise is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that makes available and provides access to yoga and mindfulness.  We have a responsibility to be of service to others. We create the opportunity for others to experience the practice of yoga and mindfulness. 


 why serve, why us?

Roots2Rise serves Philadelphia and the surrounding area. 

We believe in service. We work to meet every student, every person where they are with empathy, compassion and love. 

Our teachers have worked in prisons, shelters, community centers, hospitals, schools, businesses, service organizations and city facilities. We believe in partnership and the creation of long term relationships that foster and cultivate community. 

Attending yoga class at CFCF was beneficial to me in so many ways. It teaches patience, endurance, and strengthens the mind, body, and soul.
