Little Flower Yoga is one of the founding members of The Yoga Service Council, an organization dedicated to using the tools of yoga to foster joy, resilience, and well being in every person regardless of circumstance so that all communities can thrive. Our mission is to support individuals and organizations to best serve and empower their communities through yoga.
As yoga, mindfulness and meditation continue to demonstrate the capacity to heal, inspire, reduce stress and improve health in widely diverse settings, the yoga community has come together to support the work of expanding access to these transformational practices.
The Yoga Service Council was formed in 2009 at The Omega Institute by a group of organizations bringing yoga to underserved populations. As we worked to support each other, exchange ideas and envision the future, a collaboration was sparked that has made all of our efforts stronger and more intentional.
Each year the membership of the YSC grows, and our capacity to serve grows with it. We meet every May through the generosity of Omega to exchange best practices, discuss how to expand access, and infuse our programs with renewed energy and inspiration.
The mission of the YSC is to support individuals and organizations to best serve and empower their communities through yoga and mindfulness. Our members currently bring these practices to tens of thousands of people: veterans, trauma survivors, incarcerated adults and teens, cancer survivors, at-risk children, domestic violence survivors, but there are many millions more to serve.
Through our collaboration we seek to support those on this path of service, so that we can all remain open, nonjudgmental, informed, educated, & self reflective in our work.

The Home for Little Wanderers is a Boston based organization dedicated to ensuring the healthy behavioral, emotional, social and educational development and physical well-being of children and families living in at-risk circumstances. In 2010 The Home invited LFY to Boston to train a group of staff members in yoga and mindfulness skills, and launched a very successful pilot program at one of it’s group homes for teens.
The Home runs seven group homes for children with a wide range of challenges, and is working to expand access to yoga to all of them. If you are a yoga teacher in the Boston area and would like to help, please CONTACT US for more information.
