Yoga Mountain Studio is a community-based studio because we engage in and care about the lives of the people who live and visit Marin and the world. We believe that everyone should have access to yoga that wants to. We have created a YMS Scholarship Program that offers steeply discounted yoga to dedicated yoga students that have limited finances. Currently, the program is sponsored by the studio and students that wish to donate. To support a fellow yoga friend please email the studio. We will match each sponsor with a student or you can donated funds to the general YMS Scholarship Fund.
We care about local schools! Our studio donates FREE Yoga classes to auction at fundraisers. The teachers of Yoga Mountain Studio also donate their time by teaching FREE classes at Marin Schools to help our children learn how to use this powerful practice to focus, relax and connect with each other. Our kids learn to meditate, they are naturals. Our teachers learn so much from them so we are not sure 'who" is the actual teacher.
Our studio organizes special classes and events to benefit non-profits who are doing amazing work for the under-served populations or areas effected by natural disasters. We alternate our benefits to include both local and global causes that align with our passion to grow the inter-connection between Yoga~ Earth~ Community~ Spirit. Some of the groups we have donated substaintally to include:
Art of Yoga Project
Homeward Bound of Marin
Prayer Flags for Peace
Women for Women International
Doctors without Borders for Haiti Relief
Doctors without Borders for Japan Relief
