Mauriasha Burton, 11, paints a sign on the fence at the entrance to the Yoga Gardens space Wednesday, June 27, 2018, in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. “Yoga Gardens….it’s a place for the neighborhood to come just to feel peace,” said founder Indigo Monae. “The environment around here is very intense, you know, a lot of deaths, a lot of trauma happening, a lot of gangs and violence, so it’s a place where they can come and just like, let all that go and just relax for awhile.”
