IT'S YOGA PRACTICE, NOT YOGA PERFECT

Ahimsa Yoga 716 helps children and adults who are experiencing stress or trauma learn yoga and mindfulness so they can develop a strong sense of self along with a feeling of peace and calm.


Yoga is not a luxury. It should be available to all who need it. Ahimsa Yoga 716 provides classes on a sliding-fee and works with other organizations to guide those in need through their yoga practice.

Lauren Etu, founder, has spent 20 years working in education as a school psychologist. She is a trauma-informed and resilience-focused clinician. Lauren began her yoga practice while in college to assist with stress. However, her practice deepened while living with infertility and the grief that went with that. She became a certified yoga instructor for children and adults when she saw how much good yoga can do in a person's life - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
