CorePower Yoga would like to invite you to take your yoga practice to the next level by taking action to promote positive change within the community through our Karma Yoga Projects. These projects involve the spiritual practices of Karma Yoga, the yoga of action, and Seva, selfless service.
What is a Karma Yoga Project?
Have you been wanting to volunteer but have no idea how to get started?
A Karma Yoga Project is a volunteer project organized with a non-profit service organization. We coordinate everything for you, and you just have to show up! CorePower Yoga works to connect projects with our Teacher Trainings and Lifestyle Programs to help encourage our trainees and students to take their yoga off their mat. Karma Yoga Projects are an opportunity for us to inspire our students, teachers and entire yoga community to get out there and be of service through action.
CorePower Yoga's Karma Yoga Project Denver is seeking volunteers to work with Urban Peak.
Urban Peak helps young people overcome homelessness and other real life challenges by providing safety, respect, essential services and a supportive community, empowering them to become self-reliant adults.
Volunteer duties: Bring your favorite dinner dish, dessert and beverage to share with a large group. The volunteer coordinator will work with the group to determine what is needed each month. Build relationships and open your heart to those supported by Urban Peak by eating dinner with them that night.
CorePower Yoga Minneapolis has created a Karma Yoga program in acknowledgment of the four pillars of yoga. We believe selfless service is an important aspect of yoga, and offer this program to our students as an opportunity to grow in humility, service and grace. CorePower Yoga Minnesota started its Karma Projects in April of 2007. Since then, we’ve partnered with several different organizations once per month in service to the Minneapolis and St. Paul community.
Since April 2007, Karma Yoga Minnesota has served food to people in need through the Dorothy Day Center and People Serving People. We’ve painted and prepared new apartments for homeless individuals moving into new homes, and we’ve partnered with 2nd Harvest Heartland in distributing food to local soup kitchens and families in need. We’ve served Twin Cities Marathon runners before their race, made gingerbread houses with underprivileged youth, raked leaves for senior citizens in North Minneapolis and helped preserve the land along the Mississippi River bluffs just miles from our St. Paul studio.
We guide our students to leading an extraordinary life through all of our wellness programs, and through our Karma Yoga project, participants not only grow within themselves, but greatly impact the community around them.
