I’m proud to say that Akron, Ohio is my hood. Long known for where the rubber hits the road, it will soon be known as where the yoga raises the vibration of LOVE, after hundreds of yogis roll out their yoga mats and join together as a community on a huge university football field to practice yoga together at Elevate Akron.

I’m excited to announce that the city of Akron, local yoga studios (Yoga Bliss Akron is one of the sponsors), and organizations have partnered together to bring this event which will happen Sunday, November 22 at the University of Akron Field House from 4:30 – 8:00 PM.


Elevate Akron was founded in January 2014 by Lexi Carris and Tracy Rhinehart. In sharing their visions, they created a movement that celebrated and elevated Akron, the city they love, by bringing together the yoga community.

The first Elevate Akron event took place at Hardesty Park in May 2015 where nearly 1,000 yogis gathered on the grass to share in a powerful practice, food and fun. Elevate Akron’s mission is to provide free yoga events and bring together the high-vibration Akron yoga community!
