Let’s start something that combines altruism, community, karma, health, and entrepreneurism. This is what the team at Hosh Yoga (Hamid Hamidzadeh, Ty Moses, Becca Broughton and Yuuki Hirano) did when they started their not-for-profit yoga studio in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Hosh Yoga is dedicated to spreading the love of yoga and fostering a nurturing yoga community through strictly a pay-what-you-can business model. Building their studio from the ground up with equal parts will, muscle and mindfulness, these guys walk-the-walk and are true BAO Bad Ass Legends.
Millions of people live in our amazing city, but bad asses like Margaret Cusack make living here more enjoyable. Margaret is the president of the Hoyt Street Association and volunteers her time to improve the neighborhood through events like coordinating planting gardens in her neighborhood. Moreover, she encourages low income, single women from a local Y.M.C.A. to participate to further strengthen the community. Cities like New York survive because of the passion from people like Margaret Cusak, which is why we think she is a BAO Bad Ass Legend.
