Surya Chandra Yoga Sanga (SCYS) was founded and created in 2012 by yoga teachers JJ Gormley, Scottie Bruch, and Barbara Sager. SCYS became incorporated in the State of Florida as a non-profit organization in July 2012. The initial reason behind the formation to meet the need for yoga classes in communities with little to no funding; the desire of yoga teachers to help these communities; and the lack of an organization to link these teachers and communities.
Because our founder, JJ Gormley, is known across the nation and teaches teachers in her training programs, she is in a unique position to create a nationwide bridge between these two communities. All SCYS board members share this vision, and living in very different parts of the United States helps them to more easily address the needs of yoga teachers and communities around the country.
