COMMUNITY


COMMUNITY SERVICE


In 2015 Land Yoga owner, Lara Land, founded Three and a Half Acres Yoga, designed to empower, heal, and connect communities using both the physical and philosophical facets of the Ashtanga yoga tradition. Our programs respond to the issues and needs of our populations, drawing on all eight limbs of yoga to increase the individual and communal capacity of our residents to envision and realize a more peaceful, just and interconnected existence.
