Seed Yoga promotes joy, inner peace, and mental wellness through breathwork, relaxation, and yogic movement, making these practices inclusive and accessible to all, while supporting education, adults facing challenges, and positive relationships. We spread seeds of wellness throughout entire communities by starting with individuals.

Yoga is more than just exercise!  It is wonderful for mental wellness too!  Yoga is breathing intentionally. Yoga is meditation. Yoga is mindfulness. Yoga is disciplining your mind and your body, using the tools from breath, intention, and movement. It is one of the greatest tools for physical and mental health.

We want to remove any barriers to yoga that youth, families, and other individuals might face. We offer fair pay to yoga instructors for their services. This furthers our outreach and removes the need to find hard-to-come-by volunteers.

We want to increase our free offerings, hire more instructors, and start hosting retreats for family caregivers.  Please donate today to help us grow!
