Our Story

We bring people together with the community-building power of yoga to create social change.

Yoga In Our City began in 2012 in Hartford, Connecticut as a project of Civic Mind, a creative agency dedicated to social progress.

We recognized the transformative power of yoga and believed bringing people together to enjoy a shared yoga experience would build a greater sense of appreciation and connection to our city. We offered one class every week with a simple goal to “build a happier, healthier Hartford.”

As our popularity grew, we offered more classes in more places. New people and organizations began to support and shape our work, our goals, and our impact. Yoga In Our City has evolved from a humble weekly class to a statewide collaboration of members, teachers, and partners driven to build a culture of community connection and well-being.

Where we’re heading

Thanks to the continued support of our partners, teachers, members, and participants, Yoga In Our City’s future shines bright. 

As we plan our growth, we will always be guided by our shared vision of building stronger communities through compassion, gratitude, and mindfulness. We are committed to continually learning and improving as we appreciate the responsibility of bringing yoga to the communities we serve.
