At Yoga Home, we know nurturing relationships and being in community with others fosters a deeper sense of purpose. We strive to be of service to ourselves and to each other, in both our own neighborhood and across the globe.Each month, we choose different organizations and missions to support. In September, we focused on raising money for those affected by the hurricanes. Every November, we support Warming Philly’s annual clothing drive to keep our local community neighbors warm during the winter.
This month, we will focus on efforts around World CP Day, October 6, a social movement, of, by and for the Cerebral Palsy community.
Together, we share the vision that everyone with CP and any other disability has the same rights, access and opportunities as anyone else. Our month long campaign will champion education, advocacy and acceptance on both a local and national level.

We believe yoga is for every body.
Co-founder Kerri Hanlon and her son, Sean, have helped to change the face of yoga in our community and the Philadelphia yoga community at large. This month, we ask for your support to help us keep our programs growing and accessible to many.
The Sean Hanlon Memorial Foundation will support individuals with disabilities and their families to enjoy life more fully. Yoga Home’s Adaptive Yoga Program provide a safe, sacred and inclusive space for people of all abilities to reconnect with themselves, each other and access the many, varied benefits of yoga.
We know that together we are better. We believe in the power of connection and acceptance. We believe in the power of yoga. We believe in our community. Sean Hanlon’s passing in late August impacted communities well beyond our studio. Sean was a bright light, a true inspiration and touched all those who where graced by his presence with pure joy. He taught us to celebrate our differences and what makes each of us unique. Our wish is to extend the practice of yoga, as well as other opportunities in life, to those like Sean.
“Everybody has to be unique because every body is carrying a unique soul.” ~ Osho

“We are different. We move differently. We communicate differently. We see the world from a different perspective. But we have other things in common, too. We have the same needs. To be loved. To connect. To be part of something. We share the same hopes and dreams.”
