Since there will be supporters from many regions,it will give us an accurate account whether or not this business will be successful in the neighborhood so that we may proceed with the development.

We will offer Bikram Yoga style classes.

This 90 minute class represents a set of 26 poses with two breathing exercises in a room temperature of 105 degrees and 40% humidity. Every posture is done twice except the final posture. Conducted in a heated room, Bikram Yoga detoxifies the body through perspiration, tones the muscles and flushes every cell and organ in the body.

Bikram Yoga and lifestyle living classes, is imperative to the survival and quality-of-life, of our residents.

  • Health statistics reveal higher than national averages in mortality/morbidly rates of residents with Cancer,Heart Disease, Hypertension and Obesity; less than one-third maintain healthy weight, over 38% are obese,one in three smoke, over 15% are limited in functional mobility and one in ten report sexual assault.
  • However 56% are between the ages of 20-64 and 30% are 19 or younger. We could see a rapid decline as the HIV death rate is 12 times higher than national rate, in Ward 7 alone!
Our mission is to provide our continually growing neighborhood with a community service and resources in preventing disease and promoting health.
