The annual Yoga Gangsters Challenge unites various mindful, wellness, and yogi communities around the shared value of community service. Participants and teams take on the challenge of completing 108 Sun Salutations, while the national community takes on the challenge of raising $120,000 to continue to bring empowering yoga programs to kids in crisis across the nation.
Yoga Gangsters is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty such as limited education, addiction, violence, incarceration, teen pregnancy, HIV, physical/mental disabilities and more using the science and practice of yoga.
