Yoga classes are expensive; nonprofits need new funding streams; karma yoga, the act of doing good in the world off the mat, is taking off in a big way. Enter Compass Yoga.
1.) I donate 1/3 of class fees to nonprofits selected by students, giving students the tax-deduction. Yoga classes become more affordable for students and provide much-needed funding to nonprofits they support.
2.) Because I create the classes for individuals and small groups, they address the students' specific needs and goals. I schedule times and spaces that are most convenient for students, bringing them the yoga they need, exactly when and where they need it.
3.) Karmi’s Angels is an initiative at Compass that helps newly-minted yoga teachers gain experience by arranging teaching assignments for them in under-served communities in New York City.
