About Urban Yogis: Led by Erica Ford (New York City Crisis Management, Queens Division), the program was inaugurated with five young adults from South Side Jamaica, Queens, who have been personally affected by gun and other types of violence. These young men and women have been engaging in community activism to address these issues, which has included learning the transformative tools of yoga and meditation. Inspired by their experiences, they have created an initiative to bring these tools to their community. The Urban Yogis are now all teaching yoga in the New York City Public School system as a way of inspiring other young, at-risk youth to choose alternative pathways towards positivity and peace. Get your High Vibes Tee today and help fund an amazing effort to use yoga and meditation as transformative tools in their community.
