Dew Yoga is motivated by and committed to community service through several outreach initiatives that make Yoga and enrichment programs accessible to all.
Karma Donation Classes - Held weekly, no fees. Students are welcome to bring a donation but none is required. See the wishlist for suggestions.
Sliding Scale Class Cards, Karma Recipient spaces in Workshops and Events and Sponsored Class Cards are made available through donations, individual and business sponsorships.
If you can not afford Yoga due to a financial or medical hardship, please contact Jen to obtain a low or no cost class card. All Karma Recipients and sponsors are kept anonymous and confidential.
Several fundraising events each year will directly and 100% benefit a local or global cause. For example, in January of 2010, Dew Yoga held a three day all donation weekend of Yoga to support relief efforts in Haiti through Save the Children. Read about the event here.
