Our July 26, 2020, We Are Change Yoga event brought to mind the meaning of balance and the importance of it in every facet of our personal lives and in the broader society. We asked each instructor to identify a cause whose work aligns with our mission of bringing balance to the underserved. These causes are included in each instructor's profile below. *Please continue to support these beautiful instructors and the important causes they are bringing to our awareness. May we continue to strive toward balance, equanimity, and equality for all.
