As many of you know, I head-up the Karma Yoga London movement, which encourages yogis in London to take their yoga practice off the mat and more selflessly serve the welfare of the world. Through a few fundraising events and classes, we have supported both local and international organisations. It is so inspiring to be part of this community, and it has helped me become aware of the ever-growing number of yoga teachers and students across London who are doing their part to give back to their communities through yoga. I though it would be helpful to compile a little directory of charity-based yoga classes in London, which I've started below. Please add a comment if you know of similar classes that I've overlooked, and I'll add them to the list.
Charity Classes Based in Studios
Yogarise Peckham: Fridays 11:30am-12:30pm. A rota of teachers move through this slot, which runs on a donation-basis, and all money is donated to charity of the studio's choice each month.
Yotopia: Wednesdays 2-3pm. Josephine McGraill teaches this donation based class, which raises money to support a family she stayed with in Nepal who were impacted by the earthquake there last year. You can learn more about her work on her facebook page.
