About Us

Formed in the summer of 2018, we are an organization with leadership experience, expertise, and passion. Our board, composed of seven like-minded women, has more than 100 years of experience teaching, working in public schools, or serving in the public sector. We have master’s degrees in areas such as art education, instructional systems technology, physical education, and business. Our instructors are certified 200 hour RYT with 140 hour certifications in trauma sensitive yoga, 100 hours certifications in trauma sensitive yoga for children, and 150 hours of mindfulness training, including MBSR. We are makers of positive change in our community, and as individuals have promoted art, mindfulness, education, and a sense of community for decades. In 2018, we realized that to make the greatest impact, we needed to formalize our efforts and create a nonprofit entity that would umbrella our passions. We are believers that “we must be the change that we want to see in the world.”
