The Honor Yoga Foundation
Established in 2017, The Honor Yoga Foundation is a collection of like-minded individuals committed to investing time and energy into personal care and community empowerment, helping to encourage civic participation and the goal of society to move in a more humanitarian and equitable direction. We created the Foundation because we believe strongly in community and social outreach. But making any kind of meaningful difference in the lives of others can only start when we take care of ourselves first. Self-care can lead to insightful, more equitable decision making, and that can mean a better world for all of us.
We believe the practice of yoga is integral to self-care and results in a greater feeling of community, connectedness, and gratitude. Through our Foundation, we work to bring these beliefs to life via our yoga-related programs, our support of new and established yoga teachers through scholarships, and our lovingly prepared healing retreats.
We operate with the highest standards of stewardship to advance our mission and provide valuable programs to those in need. We’re committed to social empowerment, sustainability, and wellness, and believe that because the practice of yoga nurtures the mind, body, and soul of each person who embraces it, compassion will result and will manifest in our everyday lives.
The Honor Yoga Foundation is looking forward to continuing to provide yoga-related programs, scholarships, and retreats, and we’re excited to share our mission with Honor Yoga’s ever-expanding studio locations. Studio owners are encouraged to nominate students and teachers who will promote our mission for scholarships. Each Honor Yoga Studio is also encouraged to work with the Foundation to offer yoga-related programs to organizations locally that are working on providing peace and healing in their communities.
“I was ready to retire from the corporate world and wanted something that would have a positive impact in my community. Mark and I were already dedicated to our yoga practice and thinking about teaching…I love the direction Honor Yoga is moving in and am truly excited to be a part of it!”
