To improve the physical health, mental, and spiritual wellness of the Alger Heights and Garfield park neighborhoods. We intend to accomplish this through opening a yoga studio and wellness center in the heart of our neighborhood
We strive to develop a welcoming, and family-friendly environment that is holistic, and all-inclusive; offering a creative space for members of this community.
We believe we are all an ongoing project that is never truly finished. We simply need to trust and embrace the process.
Heights Yoga Project was founded by Niki Corcoran, a 200 hour registered yoga teacher originally from Lansing, Michigan. Niki and her husband moved to the Alger Heights neighborhood three years ago and immediately felt at home. With encouragement from friends, Niki started a Facebook group to gauge interest for yoga classes in their community. Within three days there were over 350 members and and now the group has reached nearly 600 members and we have been practicing yoga ever since.
