This Fall, we've invited Leap of Joy one of our favorite, local, non-profit organization to collaborate
with us & do what they do best - inspire us to stay healthy through dance!
Community collaboration is a new
initiative at Shakti Yoga & Holistic Wellness! It's our opportunity to give back & support other small organizations with big hearts - who share some our core values such as making the world a better place through joyful movement.
LoJ brings creative movement to young people in Austin public schools where access to suchart & enrichment activities are very limited or often not available. LoJ's classes are usually held after-school and offered at no cost to the kiddos attending. The funds raised through the classes at Shakti Yoga will go towards supporting their program development & staffing.
