WE ASKED FOR YOUR HELP

in nom­i­nat­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions with a track record of suc­cess­fully in­te­grat­ing yoga into lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties as a tool for health and hap­pi­ness. Thanks to all of you who an­swered the call! It was in­spir­ing to learn more about the ex­pand­ing role of yoga ser­vice. To de­ter­mine our 10 fi­nal­ists, we re­lied on the ex­per­tise of part­ners from the Yoga Ser­vice Coun­cil, Give Back Yoga Foun­da­tion, Yoga Al­liance, and Lu­l­ule­mon’s so­cial im­pact pro­gram Here to Be. To­gether they chose 10 ex­em­plary or­ga­ni­za­tions that are mak­ing bold strides in their com­mu­ni­ties.

Thanks to a gen­er­ous grant from Lu­l­ule­mon and Here to Be, all 2018 Good Karma Award win­ners will be head­ing to the an­nual Yoga Ser­vice Con­fer­ence at Omega In­sti­tute next May, and $10,000 will go to ACT Yoga, an or­ga­ni­za­tion founded by a former in­mate who be­gan prac­tic­ing and teach­ing yoga while in­car­cer­ated. He now works tire­lessly to bring the ben­e­fits of yoga to un­der­served com­mu­ni­ties through­out Chicago. Read on to learn more about this year’s win­ners and the ways they are shap­ing the fu­ture of yoga.
