Virtual Karma Classes
Virtual Karma Classes are 60 minute, donation-based Modo classes that serve two main purposes:
- Raise money for non-profit organizations.
- Make practicing yoga more financially accessible to all.
These classes are an integral part of who we are, and have been offered—at least once per week—by every single Modo studio since our community’s very first days (back in 2004)! Since then, we’ve raised and donated more than $6 million as a collective Modo Yoga community.
Even during COVID times, when studio doors have been closed, it’s remained important to us that we continue to reach out and offer our support in this way. Between June – August 2020, the Modo Yoga Community raised a total of $15,190 CAD for 12 BIPOC organizations, including:
June — Black Lives Matter, NAACP Legal Defence Fund, Black Women In Motion, The Innocence Project
July — NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, The Loveland Foundation: Mental Health Fund For Black Girls/Women, Yoga Gives Back, Canadian Civil Liberties Association, SOCH Mental Health
August — Welcome Collective, Black CAP, Rediscovery T’aalan Stl’ang” Cultural Camp on Haida Gwaii, and Pretty Brown Girls Foundation
This Fall, we’ll be donating funds to 4 different charities that speak to our community’s 6 Pillars.
