Small World Yoga is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Nashville, TN, whose mission is to connect people and create community by increasing access to yoga.
Small World Yoga (SWY) was founded in 2014 by Executive Director Liz Veyhl. The mission of Small World Yoga is to connect people and create community by increasing access to yoga. Our organization brings free and deeply discounted trauma-informed yoga and meditation services to underserved and historically marginalized populations in Middle Tennessee. We believe yoga and mindfulness have the power to transform individuals through healing and connection, and we envision a world in which everyone has access to these benefits.
Through yoga, we teach coping mechanisms for trauma and tools to enhance self awareness. These tools are meant to be taken off the yoga mat and into the world. We are motivated by improving the quality of life and overall well-being of those we serve on an individual level, subsequently altering how they interact with the broader world. We believe that if everyone has access to yoga, people are empowered and our communities are strengthened, ultimately making a big world feel small.
