Cooking with Yo

My name is Yocheved, aka Yo.  I've been in the fitness industry for about 9 years. I'm certified in fitness training, body building and yoga, and now I am a competitive bodybuilder taking part in the bikini category. However, I love baking and I appreciate treats from the oven, especially oatmeal cookies. I also teach healthy cooking classes and yoga to the special needs community. I train my clients to achieve their fitness goals and I am very excited to meet you and help you achieve your goals as well.


I started teaching yoga classes at SNACK in 2012 with the goal of simplifying the traditional yoga poses in a way that makes them accessible to individuals with special needs. Since the addition of the 21+ program at SNACK for young adults, I’ve been teaching cooking classes as well! I try to break down each recipe into 5 easy steps that provide opportunities for the group members to participate and work together. There's also a big focus on communication within the group; everyone has to work together to achieve a common goal.


Each year, we launch our SNACK Annual Online Fundraising Campaign in April to coincide with Autism Awareness Month.  Providing quality, year-round services to the growing and aging population of children with autism SNACK serves requires us to fundraise throughout the year to enable us to sustain and expand SNACK Programs. Our future depends on our community of families and supporters joining together to help us keep SNACK going & growing. We hope we can count on your support to ensure we continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives and futures of our children, teens, young adults, and their families.  See how your generosity & support makes a tremendous impact in their lives.
