Sadhana Service Project is growing and blooming!

grants & gratitude

We are so happy to announce that SSP has received a generous grant from the Gochman Family Foundation, on the recommendation of our dear friend, Zach Feuer! We also received a small grant from the Bank of Greene County. Thank you so much and we’re off and running, creating new programs and growing our existing ones.

teaching, planting & learning

Currently Elle Renaldo and Niesha Taylor teach yoga on Zoom at Meadow Run, an addiction recovery center for women, and Brooke Murray teaches at Columbia Pathways to Recovery. Elle and I worked with eight women at Meadow Run to build two raised garden beds and planted them with herbs, vegetables and flowers. We have just added a class for the men at Fox Run, a brother center to Meadow Run, taught by Paula Macali.

Our Yoga Snack videos continue to be offered to Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood kids with an incarcerated parent. Starting at the end of June, Leah Gooch and I will commence a yoga and writing program for the Youth Club in Catskill, a center providing resources to all young individuals who are in recovery, who are seeking recovery, or who have been impacted by Substance Use Disorder.

Rachel Wood and I completed an online training with Liberation Yoga Project, directed by Anneke Lucas. We are waiting to be able to go back into local jails and prisons. Feathertail Farm is growing food in the hopes of donating to local prisons, inspired by Sweet Freedom Farm.

Cassandra Currie is finishing her long-term association with Red Hook Rehabilitation Center, as they prepare to close and relocate the young men. Thank you so much, Cassandra.
