Stonewall Yoga Pittsburgh (SYP), a new LGBTQ+ yoga program, is launching in spring 2021 in the steel city. Recently, members of the Stonewall Alliance community cast their “votes of support” for the creation of the program and attended 2 preview classes in Fall 2020. In December, the Stonewall Alliance Board approved the launch of the new program as a formal series of sessions.
This new yoga program was originally proposed to the Stonewall Alliance Board in early 2020 by Michelle Kaminsky, certified yoga instructor and Stonewall member. The proposal recognized the body and mind benefits of yoga for the LGBTQ+ community and leveraged the successful structure from Stonewall Sports Inc sister city, Philadelphia.
SYP is led by Kaminsky in the role of Commissioner with the inaugural program scheduled to take place at Arsenal Park in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood on Sunday mornings this spring. Program dates, fees and additional details will be announced prior to registration being opened for signups in spring 2021. The program is seeking feedback which will help in the finalization of these important details. Complete the Yoga Survey.
