Shanthi Project

Profile
Founded in Easton, Pa., in 2010, Shanthi Project teaches therapeutic yoga and mindfulness classes throughout the Lehigh Valley to hundreds of at-risk youth and trauma survivors, including children in the foster care system, veterans, and the incarcerated. In addition, Shanthi Project presents in-class mindfulness to thousands of school children and their teachers each school year. Through controlled movement, breathing, and mindfulness, students learn valuable coping and life skills that cultivate self-awareness, enhance compassion, and promote positive emotions, helping to establish healthy and productive relationships with themselves, their families, and their communities.  Shanthi Project’s teachers are skilled and compassionate, and have received specialized training in trauma-informed yoga, including how to work with at-risk youth and those who have survived emotional and physical trauma.
