Austin, TX, May 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX, offers several donation-based yoga classes to benefit local and global non-profits. The classes include Third Fridays, which are offered every third Friday of the month at a different Yoga Yoga location, and Yoga Yoga Teacher Training Graduate Intern classes, which are held at Yoga Yoga South, 1700 S. Lamar. In addition to helping the featured non-profit, providing donation-based yoga classes helps to make yoga more accessible to the Austin community.
“We believe that yoga is something to serve not only ourselves but the world around us,” explains Yoga Yoga C.O.O. Chris Phillips-Frishman. “In that effort, we want to support charities that help to aide in the health and well-being of people not only in our local Austin community but also the global community.”
Every Third Friday of the month at Yoga Yoga, a donation-based class will be held from 7:30–9 p.m. A different non-profit will be selected each month to receive the proceeds from the class. Yoga teachers donate their time to teach these classes, allowing all proceeds to go directly to the non-profit.

- May 21, Yoga Yoga Northwest benefiting Keep Austin Beautiful
- June 18, Yoga Yoga Westgate benefiting Off the Mat Into the World
- July 16, Yoga Yoga 360 benefiting Austin Pets Alive!

In addition to Third Fridays, four weekly, donation-based yoga classes are offered at Yoga Yoga South, 1700 S. Lamar. These classes are taught by Yoga Yoga Teacher Training graduate interns. All donations will benefit the Yoga Care Foundation. Senior Yoga Yoga teachers will be mentoring the graduate interns as part of the Yoga Care Foundation's mission to help create and support high standards within the yoga teaching profession.
Yoga Yoga Teacher Training Graduate Intern class schedule:
