HIGHER GROUND FOR A HIGHER CAUSE

higher-ground

Kindness, compassion and service are all inherent parts of yoga culture and, make no mistake about it, we love giving back. In fact, Higher Ground’s director was a nonprofit consultant and spent some time in early 2009 visiting nonprofits to serve, fundraise and/or provide pro bono consulting advice (you can check out a clip from her volunteer kids’ yoga classes in Cambodia here).

To continue on in this spirit of karma yoga, Higher Ground offers donations-based “good cause” classes, contributes to charitable causes and supports the karma service of other yogis.
