Community

In yoga, the concept of 'karma' is an important one. The idea that what we put into the community is what we get back is a guiding principle for the way we do business. Below is some of the work we do to support both our local and global communities.

Ongoing

Plant a Tree Project

Through a partnership with the Nature Conservancy, Bliss Flow yogis have planted 400 trees in Brazilian rain forests to date, helping offset the effects of forest degradation.

Mats for Kids Project

Bliss Flow Yoga donates gently used yoga mats to local school programs for disadvantaged youth. Teaching students yoga as a coping mechanism when facing adversity helps them relate to themselves and others in a more positive way, alleviates stress and increases resiliency.

Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease Classes

In partnership with the Wisconsin chapter of the APDA, we offer spring and fall sessions for families dealing with Parkinson’s disease. If you or someone you know would like to participate, please email us at info@blissflowyoga.com.

Food Drive with Community Action Coalition and YumButter

Bliss Flow yogis filled 2 barrels of food to help karma partner, Community Action Coalition.
