programs community yoga
Since 2008 Terry has been working with the City of Hudson, the Mental Health Association of Columbia-Greene Counties, the Hudson Youth Center and the Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood to develop after-school and summer yoga programs for at-risk youth, families, pre-natal and post-natal welfare mothers and senior citizens. Her community yoga classes in Hudson brought together four generations of Hudson families. Twenty-five percent of residents in the City of Hudson, New York live below the poverty line.
Terry has trained and led volunteers to collaboratively teach after-school yoga classes in Hudson and Catskill, New York. Her, “Kids in the Kitchen-Yoga Buddies”, program, founded with chef, Carole Clark, led to Catholic Charities of Columbia and Greene Counties receiving a $500,000 Promise Challenge Planning grant from the US Department of Education to address the needs and plan educational opportunities for the greater Hudson community.
