About CoCo-2.png
 

Who the heck is CoCo?
CoCo is the organization formerly known as Yoga Gangsters. It's short for Connection Coalition

The name has changed but the mission remains the same: 

Connection Coalition works in collaboration with nonprofit youth organizations to provide access to tools for resiliency with trauma informed practices that help calm the nervous system and allow better decision making with yoga, mindfulness and meditation.

What does that look like? 
Yoga programs in schools, shelters, jails, foster homes, rehabs and more, all led by our CoCo instructors.

As of 2018, CoCo has connected with over 17,000 kids and trained more than 3,200 volunteer teachers across the US!
