We envision a community without barriers to accessing education and experiences that enrich the individual and collective health of all.
OUR HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY
YOFO grew out of the vision of Stacey and John McLaughlin, born out of their love for yoga, mindfulness, and for their community of Fredericksburg. Having personally experienced the powerful benefits of mindful practices, Stacey and John dedicated themselves to providing the opportunity for all members of the Fredericksburg area community, especially its youngest and most at risk citizens, to experience these same benefits.
"We believe that wellness and mindfulness can be transformational—helping create connections and balance of mind, body, and breath. We are committed to the peace, healing, and strengthening of our community and each individual reached through YOFO's mission. It is our dream to remove all barriers and see each and every member of our community enjoy the benefits of these practices that we hold so dear to our hearts."
