Newport Community Yoga Non-Profit Center is now a proud partner studio of Shri Service Corps. Non Profit located in Pawtucket, RI. This partnership allows NCY to further our mission of making yoga and mindfulness classes accessible to ALL regardless of income, age, or ability level.
Since 2010, Shri through its studio and non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Shri Service Corps, has been the only yoga outreach studio and organization in Rhode Island, to serve adults and children with developmental and intellectual disabilities, veterans, children in schools, hospitals and shelters, incarcerated youth and men and women in recovery – every week.
By doing so, Shri is building healthy, balanced and compassionate communities, which to date has served more than 5,000 students with a unique S-H-R-I curriculum, which combines movement-based yoga classes with community building, mindfulness and character education components. These classes have proven to reduce stress and anxiety while building physical and emotional strength, flexibility, focus and balance.
