Open Up's mission is to teach mindfulness tools and movement practices, centering people living with disabilities.
Through inclusive, engaging, enjoyable activities including yoga and improvisational theater games, participants learn and explore new tools to help navigate social settings.
While yoga and improv are two separate disciplines, they both encourage the development of joy, interconnectivity, and deeper self understanding.
In Schools: Open Up provides inclusive yoga sessions in preK-12 public and private schools in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.
Workshops: Professional development and training for groups of people interested in learning strategies to tailor mindfulness, centering people with disabilities.
In the Community: Open Up partners with accessible community spaces to provide programming that meets the unique needs of their residents.
Private Lessons: Customized and adaptable programming to encourage increased physical and mental well-being, healthy stress management, and self-awareness.
