How one studio gives back: the Yoga Pod story

Building community & sharing yoga as a 108 Studio Partner

When they opened their studio chain, Yoga Pod franchise owners Gerry and Nicole Wienholt knew they wanted to create “yoga homes” built around warm, connected communities. As a founding 108 Studio Partner of Give Back Yoga, Yoga Pod offers bi-monthly donation classes to support our mission of bringing yoga to the underserved. Students can give back from their mats while doing what they love – practicing yoga, and coming together around a common cause. They can also explore the joys of service through Yoga Pod’s Seva Teacher Training course, which features Give Back Yoga’s “How Can I Serve?” training module. Give Back Yoga is grateful to Yoga Pod for sharing the values and commitment of Yoga Pod Boulder with studios across the country. 

“We feel privileged and honored to support the Give Back Yoga mission. We feel our participation in the yoga service module helps us live our values of ‘love’ and ‘compassion.’ Our partnership with Give Back Yoga fully aligns with Yoga Pod’s fundamental commitment to selfless service.”

~ Gerry & Nicole Wienholt, Yoga Pod Owners

How one yoga teacher gives back: Amy Devi Harris

“In our dharma, in our natural most aligned state, we are here to serve one another in one capacity or another.”

amyFor yoga teacher Amy Devi Harris, the concept of giving back was once connected to feelings of guilt, as if she owed a debt for the privilege of her own life. Through her practice, she began to understand the true meaning, joy and connection of giving back. That’s what inspires her to lead donation classes for Give Back Yoga, and to help teacher trainees understand and explore the joys of service. Read more about Amy’s service journey.
