Hannah Sweeney - Community Outreach
Yoga found its way to me a few years ago, and it has held a special place in my heart ever since. Yoga taught me the beauty of connecting the breathe, body, and mind. It's always been an expressive space for me, where all emotions and thoughts are accepted.
I believe childhood and adolescence is such a unique and impactful time. The Urban Lotus Project allows undeserved children the opportunity to experience the healing powers of yoga during a time when they may be desperate for love, compassion, and healing. The minute I heard of The Urban Lotus Project, I knew I had to become involved. This work not only impacts the adolescent's present reality, but also has the ability to change the course of their entire lives.
I love to spend time outside with the people I love. When I'm in nature with my best friends, I have all that I need.
My Mantra: "Find out what makes you kinder, what opens you up and brings out the most loving, generous, and unafraid version of you- and go after those things as if nothing else matters. Because, actually, nothing does." - George Saunders
