What We Do Mission Three and a Half Acres Yoga (THAY) heals and empowers underserved communities by using yoga, breathing and mindfulness techniques to realize a more peaceful, just, and interconnected existence. Audience THAY partners with community organizations within Harlem and Upper Manhattan that serve residents facing emotional, physical, and social challenges. Our programs reach schools, recovery centers, food banks, and other non-profits to support their existing missions and build bridges of understanding among neighbors. In addition, we provide yoga, breathing, and mindfulness techniques to those who police our neighborhoods. We believe these techniques create space and clarity in the day-to-day interactions the police have with members of our community. Vision We envision a world where the benefits of yoga and mindfulness are available to all—regardless of age, race, gender and class—providing the tools and momentum for positive change within individuals and the communities they collectively create. Our 2017 Harlem partnerships are Harlem United, local law enforcement, SBI High School, Art in Flux, NYRHE, Food Bank of Manhattan, CUNY's Department of Public Safety and Children's Aid Society.
We seek to:
Grow healthy populations
Cultivate mindful, confident, and centered individuals
Breed people who embrace the whole sphere of their beings
We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at our Celebrate Harlem Gala on March 13th, 2018!
