Each month at Harlem Yoga Studio, we work with a partner in Harlem or the greater NYC area that is dedicated to enhancing the well-being , equality, and happiness of our larger Community. We work tobring awareness to these amazing organizations online and in workshops, and we donate 20% of the proceeds from our Community Classes as an offering to those in our larger community.
