Making Yoga Accessible Together - Elevate Akron’s passion is to make yoga accessible and bring our community together! In light of the stresses of this past year, we’ve seen the need to share yoga with our community and we’ve adapted to meet this need by expanding our programming to touch lives throughout the year!

  • We provided emergency funding to 320 yoga teachers, musicians & artists in 2020.

  • We quickly launched our H.E.A.L series early in the pandemic, a free digital weekly program that featured 16+ wellness-based business owners offering guided practices for yoga and self-care.

  • We’re battling the negative effects of pandemic stress by partnering with local businesses to provide workplace wellness programming for healthcare workers, teachers and professionals in need.

In addition to all of these programs throughout the year, let’s enjoy the victory of being able to celebrate coming together as a community for our very special festival!
