Give a Little, Get a Lot

12/16/2013

Christmas is the "Season of Giving"; if you are actively living a yogic lifestyle, you could consider donating some leftover holiday money to a charity or nonprofit. The fact that December 25th is very close to the end of the fiscal year is a convenient time to do some basic accounting and give as generously, and sensibly, as possible. Plus, all donations are tax-deductible. Did you know that Yoga Accessories supports several charities and educational institutions year round? Every time you make a purchase, a portion of the proceeds go to supporting these causes. We even plant a tree for EVERY yoga mat sold through the Trees for the Future Program. Here are some of our other favorite non-profits:

  • Accrue some good karma through Karma Yoga, bringing yoga to impoverished areas of the world.
  • I cannot afford Bikram and I'm not the only one. Thank goodness for nonprofit yoga studios like Project Yoga Richmond (PYR), offering donations-based drop-in classes for all styles and levels. No one is ever turned away due to lack of funds. PYR has some of the best yoga teachers in the area offering up free classes weekly, and they regularly host special events like Glow in the Dark Yoga, Costumed Halloween Vinyasa with a DJ, Laughter Yoga, and Freedom Yoga (for those handicaps) -- for example. Special studios like these are popping up all over the country, which makes me happy because it makes yoga more accessible to more people.
  • The Sophie House in Richmond, VA provides transitional housing for single mothers or women who have been displaced (natural disaster, domestic violence, and other tragedies that leave women homeless at the drop of a dime).
  • Substance use disorder often leaves survivors penniless, jobless, and subjected to the criminal justice system. The McShin Foundation in Richmond, VA provides recovery housing with indigent beds for participants who meet certain qualification. They are Virginia's leading and authentic peer-to-peer recovery community organization, with group therapy all day, a free day program for peer support, and a safe place to live. McShin also offers yoga once a week for participants who are discovering a new way to live and restoration to physical, spiritual, and mental health.
  • Project Heal offers scholarships for residential rehabilitation services to impoverished women (and men) suffering from eating disorders.
