The Center fundraises for and implements outreach programs, which send yoga and meditation instructors out into the community to work with at need populations. These classes we offer are completely free to the participants. If you would like to get involved as a volunteer, or have a connection with a group which we might be able to assist, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the Courtyard At Riverview, located at 4th St. and Washington Ave., our instructors lead a group of seniors in gentle chair yoga, breathing, and meditation. The seniors love Kathy, who brings them chair yoga, a snack, and something to look forward to.
We would like to bring chair yoga back to the seniors at Scottish Rite Tower, in the Graduate Hospital Neighborhood. The gentle movements and stretches help the seniors maintain posture, strength, mobility, and decrease pain levels.
At the Chester Arthur School, located on 20th and Catherine, our instructors offer an after school yoga program for seventh and eighth graders as well as the teachers and administrators of the school. Yoga and meditation has been shown to improve test scores and decrease behavioral issues.
The School is only two blocks from Raja Yoga and we are excited about helping to make a difference right in our own backyard. Chester Arthur is an underfunded public school with a very active parent support organization which connected us with this opportunity.
This low-income housing facility wanted to offer an after school yoga program for kids. We hope this early exposure will both help them in school and kindle an interest in yoga which may benefit them throughout their whole lives.
Instructor Kathy Revelle gives a class to these North Philly kids during their school day. The faculty specifically asked if we could teach this class to help bring down the stress level in the school environment.
