The community class is our offering to all yogis in the Puerto Rico Yoga Community to be able to access affordable yoga teaching. We have started to offer this class 5 days a week and offer multiple level access for both beginner and advanced students. This class is excellent for students who need easier access and have extra time on their schedule to join us for a mid day stretch!
In the past we would donate as much as 100% of our proceeds from the Community Class to local and world Charities. Below we have placed a list of some of the Charities if you would like to offer help in your own way.

Yoga Aid Puerto Rico : Estancia Corazon
• Initiate and support feeding programs for homeless animals. Stray and feral animals are only fed for the purpose of gaining trust which will lead to their eventual rescue. Once they are comfortable with human contact, only then will their rescue not serve to hinder their trust in their adoptive home.
• Obtain basic vaccinations and spay/neuter services for stray animals in stable circumstances.
• Provide collars and identification tags to strays in stable situations.
• Immediate and concentrated efforts to assist homeless pregnant animals and newborn offspring.
• Euthanasia of animals that cannot be rehabilitated due to severe medical or temperament problems.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. We are truly The Positive Place For Kids. Boys and Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico have eight clubs located at Santurce, Río Piedras, Mayagüez, San Lorenzo, Carolina, Arecibo, Aguas Buenas and Loiza.

Yoga for Grace
Yoga for Grace is a non‐profit dedicated to healing, educating and empowering individuals and communities that have experienced trauma in the form of violence, abuse, rape, social injustice or natural disaster. Yoga for Grace uses a model of healing based on the methods of Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapy and elements of Mind‐Body healing through yoga, movement, meditation and music. Yoga for Grace is built on the concept of SEVA, selfless service and collective compassion to others, and through its efforts intends to raise awareness and uplift through understanding the needs of others.
In 2011 Yoga for Grace will be collaborating with a local organization, Silent Grace Foundation's and their mission in Haiti. Yoga for Grace aims to implement a yoga program in Croix-des-Bouquets, a 'tent-city' of 456 families and Orfanato Ohtade, an orphanage of 65 children to heal, empower and restore strength among these individuals, who are all survivors of trauma. Yoga for Grace will offer support to Silent Grace Foundation and, within the yoga community, will raise awareness to their efforts in Haiti.
