Our Story

The Urban Yogis program was created in response to the increasing gun violence in South-Side Jamaica, Queens in New York City. In partnership with Erica Ford, founder of Peace Is A Lifestyle, aclaimed author Deepak Chopra and yoga teacher Eddie Stern, this program is helping the youth in the Baisley housing project create profound personal and social transformation. To learn more, read Hip Hop Yoga for Healing Trauma by Deepak Chopra. 

The premiere episode of Urban Yogis: Stories of Yoga Transforming Lives on the Deepak Chopra YouTube channel documents just how powerful the practice can be on people like Juquille Johnston, who lives in a housing project in South Jamaica Queens, New York. The show asks the question: What happens when yoga goes to work in the lives of young people living in neighborhoods known for severe violence?
