This is Dhyana Yoga Arts' ongoing community project supporting non-profits, locally, nationally and worldwide through benefit classes and volunteer programs.  50% of proceeds from Community Classes and donation outreach classes go toward a different non-profit each month.  Our intention is to cultivate a flow of universal love and respect and to inspire awareness, change, and compassion on and off the mat.  Check at the studio for info on this month's Seva Inspiration! 

"You will learn a lot about yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness, of emotional bravery.  Be a warrior for love."  ~ Cheryl Strayed
