Breathe Gives: Karma Yoga at Breathe
Do good, feel good!
At Breathe, we strongly believe our practice should include the yoga of service - karma yoga - and have made a commitment to open up our studio to raise funds and visibility for a variety of deserving and, where possible, local non-profits, charities, and causes.
We seek to raise funds through a variety of means:
free community, donation-based classes
collecting items for organizations such as Faith In Action and the Safe House of Ann Arbor
participating in local events
donating our time, teaching skills, and our mat rental fees
Gratefully accepting donations
during the month of August for:
The Triple Crane Monastery, as a branch of Da Huayen Monastery in Taiwan, is located in Chelsea, Michigan, USA. The Monastery’s mission is to deliver the truths of the Buddha’s teachings, to establish American Buddhism, and to help guide society into a new era of cultural growth, social happiness and harmony.
Become a warrior of change: Join our Karma Yogis
This small but growing army of volunteers made of students, friends of the studio, and instructors engages in useful service to support our two very deserving local causes: Faith in Action and The United Methodist Retirement Community.
Students can sign up to be on a list of those willing to serve the community as volunteers, when and where needed by our community partners. Many of our students already volunteer individually for local causes; this is our way to try and provide a reliable, steady flow of support to our favorite non-profits and groups in need.
