What is SEVA?

In yoga seva is selfless service. It is a form of Bhakti Yoga (devotional) that encourages the yoga practitioner to live in a way that supports the wellbeing of others. Sometimes described as the yoga pose your heart makes, acts of charity and kindness blossom from empathy. Seva is a path to rediscover peace personally and heal the universal community. 

If you are called to practice seva, through charity or simple kindness, start where you are most passionate. Find a cause or community that resonates. We can't all do it all, but we can all do something.

Selfless Service

Since our beginning in 2016 we have prioritized how yoga and our practice can honor and help others. Empathy and financial support for various charities and causes keeps the heart of yoga at the forefront of our practice: connection.

Animal Welfare

New Year's Day fundraisers alone have generated over $5,000 for local humane centers. Additional donations have been made from fundraisers for Farm Sanctuary in New York, and Sulala Animal Rescue in Gaza, among others.

The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."
