About

We are in need of a volunteer to teach yoga to our senior residents at Mayfield Court Apartments in Gresham.

Exercise is a vital component of overall health and well-being. At Northwest Housing Alternatives, we work closely with community partners and volunteers to support our residents by providing holistic services so our community members can live fulfilling, enriched lives.

We are looking for a passionate volunteer who is knowledgeable about Yoga practice and is dedicated to improving the lives of seniors through movement, exercise, and community connection.

The classes would run on a weekly basis for a period of 6-8 weeks (or as deemed appropriate by the volunteer) at a property in North East Portland near Mt. Hood Community College.

For many of our residents, this will be their first time taking a class. Some participants may require modifications to participate. We are looking for someone with experience practicing and teaching yoga with a passion to help our residents live active, healthy lives.

Northwest Housing Alternatives' mission is to create opportunity through housing. We build and rehabilitate affordable housing for Oregonians with low incomes, including seniors, families, and people with special needs, and operate the only shelter for families with children experiencing homelessness in Clackamas County.
