WHAT WE BELIEVE IS POSSIBLE
At Project Create Space, we truly believe that the holistic services we offer have the power to heal and transform the individuals we serve, and open access to those services is central to the work we do. We believe that change on a personal level can be the catalyst for change in families, neighborhoods, and entire communities, and this belief is what drives us.
Our vision is simple: to offer the time-tested tools and techniques of yoga to a variety of populations in need, free of charge to them. We believe in yoga as a holistic, adjunct intervention to existing treatment for populations dealing with addiction recovery, PTSD from a variety of traumas, mental health issues, mobility limitations, and so much more. Our programs are diverse and utilize the science of breath work, mindfulness, and physical movement to help those we serve regain control of their lives and find a connection back their minds and bodies.
WHAT WE DO
Our belief in free and open access to the healing power of yoga is what fuels our mission at Project Create Space. Our mission is two-fold: we provide stellar, population-specific yoga programming that is offered free of charge to the individuals we serve, but we also cover the cost of these programs by compensating our instructors for their work. Compensating our instructors is extremely important to fulfilling this mission because it garners commitment from our instructors and lightens the burden of budgeting on the facilities we work with.
Since the very foundation of our organization, we have been fully supported by the generous donations of the members of our community. Yogis and teachers alike have given of their time, money, and talent to further our mission. We are honored to be a part of the fantastic community of yogis at Space Yoga Studio, but also to have the support of many facilities around Augusta who work with us to take our programs from concept to practice. We could not do this without our community members and all they bring to our organization.
CREATING SPACE FOR GOOD
Being strongly embedded in our community is extremely important to us. Diversity and inclusion are part of our core values and fuel our mission to promote the transformative power of yoga. Through fund-raising weekly classes and special events at Space Yoga Studio and other partnering facilities around the CSRA, we work hard to create and hold space for social change.
