SEYN

Socially Engaged Yoga Network

Socially Engaged Yoga Network (SEYN) supports yoga teachers and community organizations committed to sharing the benefits of yoga with under-resourced communities in the Chicagoland area.  We build partnerships in the fields of community health, social services, environmental sustainability, and education to improve health, empower communities, and leverage resources for positive social change.

SEYN hosts potlucks quarterly at partnering yoga studios and community organizations throughout the Chicagoland area. Each meeting focuses on a different topic presented by a panel of local experts.


SUMMER 2017 GATHERING - MEDITATION & SOCIAL CHANGE


JUNE INTENSIVES 2017 - hosted by community partners, YogaCare and Shiva Shack

Explore upcoming workshops hosted by local experts; they will be teaching important tools that you can integrate while sharing the benefits of yoga in community outreach. Sign up for one, a couple, or all four of them! If you have attended a SEYN event within the past year, you can register at the community rate. We hope to see you there!
