Giving Tuesday

Mindfulness. Social Justice. Sustainability.

 

Each year, nonprofits run to the finish line calling upon the generosity of people. We are grateful for all the great work nonprofits do. It is through many of these nonprofits that societal change occurs.

Our grassroots non-profit serves to support and transform our world. We do this by being a community led organization that offers services to directly address mental health, environmental disparity, education, and access. We are grateful for you, choosing our community and the ways in which we serve, to express your support and make a difference.


Our end of the year fundraising will be launching on #givingtuesday

November, 27th 2018.

We get to continue to receive your generosity

as we will continue with #givingtuesday, #everytuesday,

until the end of the year 2018.

Renovations: We are looking to install lighting around the studio creating a well lit safe space, change the windows and door to bring the volume of street noise down within the space, purchase well lit signage for outside the space, repaint front of the building, and restore plant boxes.

Outreach Programs: We offer different outreach classes within schools, community centers, housing development centers and other organizations. We are looking to expand our outreach, creating a fund specifically covering the cost of outreach classes, to directly serve specific demographics within our community; at risk women, elders, veterans….

Yoga Teacher Training: In order to keep our 200-hr Yoga Alliance training accessible, we offer a holistic comprehensive program at a $600-$1200 less then the average price of a training. Your contribution allows yogis to receive an accredited, progressive Yoga Teacher Training at a possible rate.
