What we're about

Yoga by Donation for Adults is in Portland, Oregon. We accept all levels of experience. By donation means that if you can spare it, then you may donate any amount of cash to your teacher. This in not an obligation, meaning you do not have to pay anything if you do not want to or if you do not have it. Those that do donate will indeed help pay for those who cannot. We do accept donations of yoga equipment so that we might have extras available for classes. We hope to make everyone comfortable and safe within their skill level and ability to do yoga. No one is required to do or to try any pose, and everyone is expected to practice safety and to stay within their own physical limits. The benefits from practicing yoga do not require competition or perfection. The benefits from practicing yoga come from maintaining and enhancing your body's ability to move, to stay flexible, and to experience the free flow of energy within. Namaste.
