At SYJ, we ardently believe that the gift of yoga should be available for everyone who chooses to practice it. It’s powerful stuff, it brings communities together, and it elevates us to be who we are meant to be.
Yoga reminds us that our bodies, our minds and our big throbbing hearts are strong. We remember that we are courageous, we remember that we are empowered, and we begin to move in beautiful ways on this planet, both locally and globally.
Ultimately, yoga reminds us that we have the power to heal ourselves and each other. Our mission is to team up with brave and the courageous among us so that we can work together to share yoga and to make it accessible and affordable to those in need.
Project SYJ Gives to India
As a yoga community, it is our responsibility to help the country that birthed many of the practices we hold close to our hearts. India needs our help more than ever and we’re asking our SYJ community to join us in answering their calls. The people of India are being gravely affected by the most recent wave of COVID-19 and are in need of critical supplies like oxygen and food.
Give the Gift of Wellness to our Healthcare Heroes
We’re showing our gratitude to the healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in our community by offering free year-long subscriptions to our Virtual Studio.
You can help take care of the people who take care of us in three ways:
- Donate a full year-long subscription to the SYJ Virtual Studio (15% off)
- Donate anywhere from $10-$300 to go towards a year-long subscription
- Nominate a healthcare professional who you think deserves an SYJ Virtual Studio subscription.
Please contact BK, our studio manager, to nominate someone who you think could benefit from this gift of wellness.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
In June of 2013, the SYJ community raised over $18,000.00 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We were the 2nd highest team donation in the nation. This was an unprecedented Wow! Where our amazing community proved, yet again, that the power to heal and to serve ignites when we are doing it together.
