I am committed to this mission. I think it can make a tremendous, positive impact on people's lives
Davenport, IA (Vocus) February 17, 2010
It was during a long lunch presentation that Sarah Johnson’s mind began to wander and she had a good idea that turned into a good mission. Her idea was yogaG – a non-profit organization that brings the “gift” of yoga to women and children in need of a little extra strength. The physical benefits of practicing yoga are many, but the ultimate goal is to unite the mind, body, and spirit – something that can be a positive first step in the healing process for domestic violence survivors. “I am committed to this mission. I think it can make a tremendous, positive impact on people’s lives,” says Sarah.
Based in Davenport, Iowa, yogaG acts as a matchmaker of sorts. It pairs yoga instructors with domestic violence shelters that would like to offer the program. To spread the word, Sarah commissioned Terrostar – a Davenport, Iowa Web Design and Internet Marketing company - to develop a website that serves as the starting point for this process.
Yoga instructors and companies can visit http://www.yogag.org to learn more about Sarah and yogaG’s mission. Interested individuals can donate online or shop a unique line of products designed exclusively for yogaG by New York-based, Primitive Twig.
Terrostar’s President and Owner, Tom Terronez, believes in Sarah’s mission too. “We were all really moved by Sarah’s passion and enthusiasm for yogaG. So, it has been a pleasure to offer our professional expertise to help support her cause.”
Sarah Johnson founded yogaG in 2009. She is an attorney serving as General Counsel for Augustana College. Currently, there are two pilot programs - one in Davenport and the other near Denver, Colorado. Sarah hopes to expand the program nationwide.
