In the ancient and modern world the concept of “Seva” or service to others, is an integral part of being a teacher and giving back to the community. As a teacher you have the ability and power to impact your community by bringing the healing power of yoga to homeless men, women and children. If you are interested in taking your teaching to a new high please check out the benefits, requirements and submission form below.

Chad Scott Nellis
Chad Nellis brings a wealth of experience in multiple disciplines to Yoga 4 Homeless. As a master of yoga instruction with over 20 years of practice and study under master teachers Brian Kest, Seane Corn, Baron Baptiste and Bikram Choudry, Chad has taught multiple styles of yoga including Vinyasa, Hatha and Power for the last 10 years. Currently he teaches to all age groups and abilities at Yoga Six in Point Loma San Diego with an emphasis on awakening and strengthening not only the body, but the mind and spirit.
Says Chad of his teaching: “My goal is to guide others to awaken to their infinite power, courage and compassion and ultimately become undefeatable in the face of life’s everyday challenges. I think this is crucial in helping the homeless who have lost their inner power to move ahead, take action and rejoin society as productive, happy citizens.”
