Raised by 19 people in 34 months


Hi, my name is Ellen Sevigny, I am the founder and program director of Yoga in Your Park. We are raising $20,000 for Yoga in Your Park to really take off. 


Imagine looking skyward after a sunset yoga class in your favorite park or open space. The clouds are brilliant orange and pink. A breeze is rustling your hair as the evening air cools the warmth your body has generated during your expertly-led yoga routine. Gazing inward, you have never felt more at peace, invigorated and connected to the natural world than you feel at this moment. This is Yoga in Your Park. 


Yoga in Your Park is committed to a new kind of environmental outreach, one based in loving awareness gained through the practice of yoga outdoors—in parklands and open spaces everywhere.  

Yoga as environmental activism is incredibly simple in practice: go outside, breathe and do yoga. But it is multi-faceted in its positive philosophical, non-confrontational and results-oriented approach.  

Yoga in Your Park is looking for your financial support as an investor to grow our outreach and stregnthen our program.


Mission Goals:

1) Build stronger connections to the natural world, through fun, affordable, professionaly-led outdoor yoga classes for all ability levels, conducted in parklands and open spaces everywhere.

2) Use the outdoor experience to encourage participants to cultive more environmentally-aware habits throughout their lives.

3)Expanding that environmental outreach into the world in positive, non-confrontational, results-oriented ways.

4)Create sustainable revenue streams for experienced yoga instructors and for YIYP through merchandising, seminars, teacher-training events and other means.
