Yoga4Others was created as a result of my personal struggles in managing the challenges around sheltering in place due the COVID-19 pandemic.


I felt isolated, helpless, hopeless and unproductive. After five weeks of insomnia, at 3 o'clock one morning, I came up with a plan to combine my skills in fundraising, love of yoga and deep desire to help others in need. 


Through grassroots fundraising, the first Yoga4Others movement supported the Community FoodBank of NJ. It was a team effort of 23 teachers who generously donated their time leading 35 yoga sessions for hundreds of participants of all skill levels. People donated above and beyond the suggested donation of $10 per class whether they participated or not. 

Yoga4Others has since expanded into a fundraising movement that empowers individuals and families through yoga and self-care sessions led by experts in their respected fields. Proceeds from the series of events support community-based 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organizations. 

To start a Yoga4Others and Self-Care Movement for a cause that's important to you or for private yoga sessions, please feel free to reach out to me.
