Waves of Hope is offered as a program of Yoga 4 B*
Yoga 4 B is a non-profit organization focused on implementing mindful therapeutic yoga programs in our communities and primarily in our school system. Pamela Leal started Y4B in memory of her beautiful daughter Bailey, who left her body voluntarily in 2013. Just a few years later Baileys younger sister was present during the Parkland High School shooting. Both of these heartbreaking incidents made Pamela aware that there was a need in our communities for our children. Pamela’s dream is to see yoga and mindfulness programs available in schools for kids that are struggling. A safe space where they can talk about their problems and learn new tools to help them cope with any stress or uncomfortable feelings they may be experiencing. Y4B also holds open community yoga sessions regularly in the city of Parkland for anyone interested in attending and a bi-annual Yogathon at the Parkland Amphitheater for mental health awareness.
