Back for the 5th Year!
Peach Outreach is excited to present “it’s all about U” for the fifth year! Join us for a celebration of awareness on the rooftop of Noel Furniture. We will practice yoga, laugh and celebrate together all for the purpose of raising awareness for gynecological cancers.
Meet Your Rooftop Yoga Teachers
Rooftop Teacher: Roger Rippy
Roger Rippy is the owner of YogaOne Studios, a community of seven yogastudios. Yoga is his career, lifestyle, his practice and his spiritual path. His purpose for teaching yoga is to share the gift of yoga that has radically altered, improved and ultimately saved his life. He has co-taught at Peach Outreach’s “It’s All About U” Rooftop Yoga every year since its inception, and he has been friends, family, peers, and confidants with Marcy Kurtz since 2010. It is his privilege to honor her legacy in some small way by serving Peach Outreach.

Gayatri Parikh is the Community Director of BIG Power Yoga‘s Memorial location. Gayatri lives yoga on her mat and in her life and is passionate about sharing the practice of yoga and its potential to transform lives. Marcy Kurtz was one of Gayatri’s teachers, and there for every step of her yoga journey, from the start of her beginning to practice Baptiste yoga to her becoming a yoga teacher. Gayatri has supported Peach Outreach through hosting the “it’s all about U” event at BIG Memorial for the past two years and by forming a BIG running group for Sprint for Life Race, which raises funds for gynecological cancers. To Gayatri, it is a gift to be a part of the Houston yoga community and to share the practice that has transformed her life.
Rooftop Teacher: Dani Quattrone
“The key to working through resistance is always radical inner surrender, a calm determination, and a commitment to letting go.” – Baron Baptiste.
Dani Quattrone is a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) at Black Swan Yoga. Dani found yoga nearly ten years ago while studying at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. After taking her first hot power yogaclass at a Baptiste Affiliate Yoga Studio in Georgetown, Down Dog Yoga, Dani fell in love with what yoga had to offer—a method for physical fitness surrounded by an empowering community committed growth and personal development.
Through Dani’s involvement in the Baptiste Yoga community in Houston, she learned about Peach Outreach and the empowering message that Marcy Kurtz shared with the world – no matter how hard life gets, simply show up. It is this powerful and empowering message that now inspires and influences Dani’s classes and her life.

The Rooftop Yoga Story
In 2013, Marcy Kurtz, founder of Peach Outreach, had an idea to connect the yoga community with cancer awareness through a fun outdoor yoga event. Marcy searched for a venue and discovered that the rooftop of Noel Furniture would be the perfect place. With a little convincing, Marcy persuaded the owner of Noel Furniture to take a chance and host the event. A partnership was born and rooftop yoga has provided magic to the Houston yoga community for the last four years. Marcy battled uterine cancer on and off for several years. Come join us in our fifth year and show Marcy that her warrior community is as strong as ever!
