Since our inception, 8 Limbs has proudly hosted benefit and free yoga classes to support local non-profits, including Thanksgiving Benefit Classes at each studio. As we grew to four studios, we asked each location to chose the recipient for their annual Thanksgiving Benefit Class. With these classes we’ve gathered substantial donations for organizations like Yoga Behind Bars, Union Gospel Mission, NW Harvest, and Plymouth Housing, to name just a few.
In March the 8 Limbs Leadership Team decided to both expand and focus our Community Giving by choosing one exemplary non-profit a year to partner with. We kicked this off in 2015 and chose to support Portland-based Mercy Crops in their efforts to help the people of Nepal recover from major earthquakes in April and May. Next year we plan to partner with Street Yoga to fund their mission, which is to build capacity in youth to overcome trauma and to create meaningful, healthy lives through yoga and mindfulness.
Please join us this Thanksgiving to gather in community, practice together, and raise funds for the people of Nepal as they continue their road to recovery. You can also support the people of Nepal with the special gifts we’ve chosen to sell at the Boutique this year.
