A core value of Balancing Monkey Yoga is to support the community and give to organizations locally, specifically through our Yoga For A Cause Program. Across its initial five years, Yoga For A Cause raised and donated more than $4000 to community groups. It essentially works like this - each quarter Balancing Monkey Yoga dedicates three classes to one community organization. The proceeds for those classes are given to the organization. Balancing Monkey provides the space and teachers for free.
Yoga For A Cause has benefitted diverse local organizations including, but not limited to, Let’s Grow Hilo, Ohana Domestic Violence Shelter, Hilo Medical Center Foundation, ARC of Hilo, Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary, and the Hilo Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Support Group. Balancing Monkey has also provided free private yoga classes to students and faculty of Lanakila Learning Center, which serves students from Hilo High School who are considered at risk of failure from school.
Your attendance at class helps raise funds for the month’s cause. Cash donations are also accepted at the studio anytime. Thank you for practicing and for contributing to Balancing Monkey’s Yoga for A Cause Program.
