Each quarter at Harlem Yoga Studio, we work with a partner in Harlem, the greater NYC area, or nationally that is dedicated to enhancing the equality, peace, and well-being of our larger Community. With input from you, we choose organizations whose missions are aligned with our values of community, connection, accessibility, and wellness. Through our Community Classes and partnership program, we bring awareness of these amazing organizations, and as a sangha donate 20% of the proceeds from our Community Classes. Starting in 2019 we count on YOU to help us choose a partner. Know of a wonderful organization that could use some additional attention and funds – be sure to let us know, and nominate them in Q3!!

2020 Community Partners
Our January through March Community Partner for 2020 is Together Rising: Together Rising transforms collective heartbreak into effective action by connecting givers’ generosity with the people and organizations around their community, and the world, who are effectively addressing critical needs.
Our partner for April through June is the Climate Emergency Fund, created to support the individual activists and organizations working to wake up the public to the threat of climate change and demand action from our leaders. CEF believes that only a peaceful planet-wide mobilization will give us a chance to avoid the worst-case scenarios and restore a safe climate.
For Q3 (July to September) we are continuing the tradition started in 2018 of having the HYS Community Choose our Community Partner. Are you affiliated with, or a supporter of a wonderful organization that could use some attention and financial assistance?! Be sure to sign up for our email newsletter and then look for our June email, where you can nominate

ETI brings yoga to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in New York City, the Hudson Valley, Long Island and Connecticut through weekly classes at shelters and community-based organizations. By providing access to the practice of yoga to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, Exhale to Inhale offers a valuable resource to a distressed community.
