At the end of this past August 2022 My Comunidad Foundation opened a nonprofit yoga studio space in the city of Paramount, California. We have been so grateful to be able to offer low-cost and scholarship-based yoga classes. Yoga is a wellness resource and way of life that leads to well-being. It is My Comunidad’s mission to create spaces where yoga can be accessible to underserved communities, while also honoring the roots of yoga and offering an embodied practice in each of our classes. We also strive to be a space where yoga is available regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability, or any other background.
Typically, wellness spaces are located in more affluent areas and the average cost of a class can be expensive at $20 or more per class. However, these spaces are beneficial to everyone regardless of socioeconomic status (SES).
In addition, My Comunidad hopes to be a space that welcomes every population. We will work towards the representation of teachers and students, and provide classes that are accessible to any individual wanting to practice yoga.
