In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali the very first tenant of the moral guidelines or ‘Yamas’ is compassion for all beings or ‘Ahimsa’. Compassion for others and giving back are a part of our yoga practice. Pleasure Point Yoga works to give back by supporting the amazing organizations below. We encourage you to support these or any other worthy causes as a part of your yoga journey.

The Gentle Barn
The Gentle Barn rescues farm animals and works with children from the inner-city, group homes, mental health care facilities, foster homes, and schools to teach them that even though we are all different on the outside, on the inside we are all the same and are deserving of the same rights, respects and freedom.
