Katie Galligan wrote -Yoga Gangsters is a non-profit organization that empowers youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty such as limited education, addition, violence, incarceration, teen pregnancy, HIV, and more through the science and practice of yoga.
This annual YG Challenge unites various mindful, wellness and yogi communities around the shared value of community services. Participants and teams will take on the physical challenge of completing 108 Sun salutations, which the national community takes on the challenge of raising $120,000 to continue to bring empowering yoga programs to kids in crisis across the nation.
100% of all funds raised go to YG a US 501c(3) tax deductible org. This Miami-based nonprofit org provides free empowering and urban flavored yoga programs to youth across the country who are at risk or in crisis. Classes are held in RTCs, jails, shelters, schools, and other settings to teach youth better focus to make better choices through the messages of self-control, self-respect, and self-awareness.
YG now serves over 5,000 kids in 9 states (Arizona now included since March 2013!!), and has rallied their 500+ volunteers to support the national movement. KEEP THE YG MOVEMENT FLOWING AND DONATE TODAY!
