305 Yoga & Outreach
One day, when she was out on the beach, Terri Cooper came upon and joined a free yoga class. She was so drawn to the idea of yoga for everybody that she soon founded 305 Yoga & Outreach. Fueled by karma yoga principles, Terri and her team of gurus create opportunities for people to “step into positive action and empower their lives” through the practice of yoga. To this end, Terri holds a free yoga and donation-funded class to create a studio where anyone can practice regardless of means. Profits from this class go to fund 305 Yoga’s nonprofit arm, Yoga Gangsters, which brings the multidimensional practice of yoga to youth suffering from trauma and poverty. 305 Yoga also serves as a yoga university, preparing practitioners to turn yoga into a career through three teacher-certification programs.
