Founded in March 2014 by Executive Director, Kathryn Thomas. This location was the very first city Y4C offered programming. Currently we offer trauma-informed yoga programming to Veterans, Youth, Individuals in the Caceral system and those recovering from substance use. To date, we have impacted 17,000+ individuals per year.
Yoga 4 Change was awarded a grant to study the affects of Y4C programming on the opioid crisis. In January 2019 programming started with a curriculum specific to those recovering from substance use in the South Florida area.
We began teaching our substance use specific curriculum in the Tampa Bay area in May 2019. We are currently offering programming in 3 facilities in Tampa.
