Every year Amala will now donate one full ride scholarship to a motivated and dedicated community member to attend Amala’s 95 hour teacher training program. We are so excited to announce Lauren Daniel of I Grow Chicago @igrowchicago the first recipient of our Amala Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship. I Grow Chicago is a community organization that is committed to bringing peace, restorative justice, yoga, mindfulness and job training skills to the Englewood community on the south side of Chicago. With Lauren leading the way, we will support the beginning of a prenatal and postnatal yoga and education program at I Grow beginning in 2018. Are you also passionate about service and want to support a prenatal program in an underserved community? Here are some ways you can help: Donate directly to Amala to support our continued outreach and training efforts or donate directly to I Grow and name the prenatal yoga program as the recipient. Look for other ways to get involved, lead your own donation-based classes or tell us about other ideas you have! Congrats, Lauren! .
