OUR VISION

To make the proven benefits of yoga accessible to all members of our community, promoting healing and building resilience.

WHAT WE DO

Through donations, fundraising events and partnerships, Studio South Foundation hires and trains certified, service-minded yoga instructors to bring yoga and wellness education to women, children and seniors in under-resourced areas and those suffering from trauma, addiction and physical or mental health issues.

OUR COMMUNITY

Though the support of our amazing community comprised of service-minded 200 and 500 hour RYT yoga teachers, donors and partners, we bring sustainable yoga classes to underserved populations in our area.

THE WHY

The benefits of yoga are abundant, scientifically proven, and economically shown. Every single human being can benefit from some form of yoga from the breath work that calms the nervous system, the postures which provide strength, stability, and flexibility, to meditation which provides mental clarity in our fast paced world.

Through regular a regular yoga practice people can tap into their own inner strength to heal, build resilience and find support.
