We don't only Practice Yoga by moving through postures on our mat, we also practice it out in the world. So every month Practicing Yoga chooses a different organization to help.
We believe personal stories have the power to inspire connectivity and evoke compassion for each other.
Humans of St. Louis (HOSTL) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that shares first-person stories and photographic portraits, featuring people and places throughout St. Louis.
HOSTL gives over 95,000 Facebook and 20,000 Instagram followers an intimate look into the lives and struggles of the people of St. Louis, one photo and story at a time. It is the second most popular “Humans of” site in the U.S. after Humans of New York.
Stories highlight areas of economic growth, philanthropy, and small businesses. They also address race, racial equity, gender equality, LGBTQ rights, community, family, youth, aging, health, disease, education, discrimination, homelessness, poverty, cultural awareness, and more. The project is intentionally grounded in social work, public health, and documentary photography.
A very special thank you to Brandon Stanton, original creator of Humans of New York who allows the Humans of movement to flourish!
