Yoga 4 A Good Hood
Olear, NY
Imani Olear is the founder of Yoga 4 A Good Hood and author of the book, True Identity:  One Womans Journey to Joy. Y4AGH mission strives to serve the community by providing financially accessible yoga related services through yoga classes where no one is turned away for lack of funds, community outreach to underserved and/or vulnerable populations and community support activities for yoga students and teachers in the Rochester NY area.  "As a woman of color, that comes from brokenness, experienced hardship and struggle, abuse and self-degradation I understand the need for peace in one's life. Also, as I have practiced yoga over the years, off and on, I have noticed the lack of people of color, those publicly struggling with mental illness and persons of certain economic backgrounds accessibility to a yoga practice.  Through this initiative, we help people find peace within instead of always seeking something outside of themselves."
