Sangha Studio is a nonprofit, donation-based studio in downtown Burlington. We currently offer yoga service programs to amazing organizations in our community. What does that mean? It means that on a weekly basis, we send teachers to community centers, schools and nonprofits to teach free yoga classes to people who wouldn’t practice otherwise. We would love to increase our community outreach — but we need your help!
We're teaming up with lululemon athletica to organize here to be. A 12-hour yogathon with intention. All funds raised at the event will benefit Sangha’s outreach programs!
