We believe that the transformative power of yoga can heal Detroit. Detroit has been hit hard in recent decades with diminishing employment, dwindling educational opportunities and has been ravished by poverty. Yoga 4 Peace seeks to service as many locations in and around the Detroit Metro area as possible through its Community Yoga Outreach Project.
CYOP works with its outreach partners to tailor a program around the specific needs of the target population to reduce depression, stress, and anxiety, as well as to improve the general health of the people it serves. CYOP empowers people of poverty to take control over their lives and thoughts by teaching discipline, breath control, and physical fitness.
