Yoga 4 Peace (Y4P) is a non-profit yoga studio dedicated to sharing yoga with all, regardless of personal belief, physical ability, or financial limitation. We believe the myriad benefits of yoga should be available to everyone—this is the foundation of our organization. Our vision represents a commitment to personal development, education and community.
Through yoga, we assist the individual in connecting with themselves in order to develop self-acceptance, confidence, stability, strength, flexibility, awareness, well-being, and clarity. We offer a variety of yoga classes and instructors to support students in developing a personal yoga practice. We encourage peace of mind through relaxation, meditation, and centering techniques.
The Yoga 4 Peace Teacher Training program is designed to take your yoga practice to the next level both physically and spiritually. We offer a 200-hour Teacher Training Program consistent with Yoga Alliance standards for Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) status. Our program at Y4P started in 2002 and is the second longest running YA certified Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in the State of Michigan.
The Community Yoga Outreach Project (CYOP) provides free yoga classes at various locations around the Detroit area. We believe that the transformative power of yoga can heal the city. CYOP has an intention to place as many qualified volunteer yoga teachers in as many organizations that serve the community as possible.
CYOP works with outreach partners to tailor a program around the needs of the target population to reduce depression and anxiety, as well as to improve the general health and well-being of the community it serves. Our outreach model provides a sustainable way to bring yoga directly to the people who will benefit the most.
From now until October 30th, you can help us continue to provide yoga to all regardless of their ability to pay. Make a donation to Yoga 4 Peace today!
