What is the Karma Class Bank and how does it work?

We believe that one's socio-economic status should not affect access to well-being. The Karma Class Bank is our form of seva*.  Shine On Yoga offers yoga classes at no cost to you in return for a small service.  All you have to do is go to the front desk and ask to take a karma class and the receptionist will give you a task to complete that will help us out here at the studio.  In exchange for your service you may have access to our services.  This program is intended for those that cannot afford yoga and would like to practice with us in the studio.  Please do not abuse the Karma Class Bank so that we may continue to allow this offering. 



*Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one's spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community.
