Yoga in Your Hood: Baltimore's Holistic Life Foundation

In 2001, brothers Atman and Ali Smith put their minds and hearts together to launch a revolutionary program to shift the conscious of Baltimore children. Their non-profit  Holistic Life Foundation grew out of a shared life-long passion to bring positive and uplifting resources to Baltimore City.

The University of Maryland-College Park Alum teamed up with college friend Andres Gonzalez and built a team that now offers yoga classes, life skills and workshops to over 25 children per day. The Grio reporter Janelle Richardson featured the brothers in a feature on Black communities and yoga.

This program proves that our kids need spiritual guidance and  tools to manage life's ups and downs. A healthy future for our children will depend on programs with both  meditation and education to teach kids  (and some adults) how to navigate emotions without resorting to violence.

Hopefully we will see the The Holistic Life Foundation spread its wings in Anacostia. For more information on The Holistic Life Foundation visit http://www.hlfinc.org
