At 8 Limbs our Community Giving takes several routes. Starting in 2016 8 Limbs will choose one local non-profit that has a connection to yoga and/or mindfulness and support that organization through the following efforts:

  • Raise awareness in our 8 Limbs community of non-profit.
  • Donation of percentage of profits for the month of May.
  • Thanksgiving Day Benefit Classes at all four 8 Limbs neighborhood studios.
  • Support of non-profit staff with discounts on 8 Limbs classes.

This year 8 Limbs has chosen Street Yoga as our Community Giving partner. We applaud Street Yoga’s mission to build capacity in youth through yoga and mindfulness to overcome suffering and cope with trauma.
