We create sustainable yoga community through scholarship and stewardship.
The work that we do is through yoga, but what we're interested in is much bigger than yoga. We believe that yoga is one of the most democratic tools at our disposal for improving overall health and wellbeing, and that all persons can access the benefits of this practice.
“Healing, he told us, depends on experiential knowledge: You can be fully in charge of your life only if you can acknowledge the reality of your body, in all its visceral dimensions.”
—The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel van der Kolk
Weekly classes across Atlanta
Our weekly, trauma informed classes offer the healing resource of yoga to people across the city of Atlanta. In partnership with MercyCare, we complement their behavioral health programming by sharing holistic yoga programs at their clinics in Chamblee and Vine City. We also provide yoga to the women of House of Cherith at City of Refuge and the men of Trinity House.
100% of City of Refuge participants who were polled reported that yoga reduces stress and tension and empowers them to manage their chronic conditions. Approximately 88% of participants agreed that yoga was “very helpful” in maintaining an overall greater sense of wellbeing.

Financial assistance for certified yoga teachers
We offer financial assistance for advanced trainings to certified teachers who want to serve their students with even more skill and care. At this time, Cultivate Union financial assistance is only available for Atlanta based yoga teachers who are active into the community.
We are creating a new version of our financial assistance program and will be announcing details in Spring 2018. Please be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive information when the program is live.
