As a business and as a community of like-minded individuals, Journey of Yoga LLC believes in the practice of seva, selfless service to others. As such, we frequently offer free classes as fundraisers for local non-profit organizations. Past recipients of contributions include Interval House, My Sister’s Place and Simsbury’s Old Drake Hill Flower Bridge. After learning about high stress levels among families resettled to our area from Africa and Asia, we offered a free class to refugees at Catholic Charities in downtown Hartford.
In 2015, JOY entered into a long-term partnership with Simsbury ABC, a non-profit college preparatory program that brings academically gifted boys of color from the northeast region to Simsbury, provides room and board, tutoring and a home like environment while they attend Simsbury High School and then go off to college to lead successful lives.
