The second quarter of 2018 has continued to gain momentum, and we’re so excited to be heading into a summer of long days, lots of yoga, and charity growth! Here’s Harriet’s report of everything going on at Yoga Quota between April-June 2018.
Charity Classes Done
Across April - June, we taught over 165 charity classes (800 individual visits), bringing our total for 2018 to over 320 charity classes & 1600 individual visits so far!
New Charity Partners
We’ve welcomed an amazing group of new charity partners on board, some already have classes up and running, and we’re working hard to match teachers with classes to deliver yoga to their beneficiaries.
Yoga Quota now has over 110 badgeholders! Badgeholders are our incredible community of teachers nationwide who have committed to teaching yoga to vulnerable people in their areas.

We are always looking for new teachers to join our expanding Badgeholder family! Fill out our online form to join today.
Our Oxford studio has continued to be a thriving and amazing centre of community!
We’ve got a wide variety of workshops lined up over the Summer and into the Autumn, and there’s truly something for everyone!
Our Open Day on Friday 27 April was an huge success and it was so lovely to see so many lovely students enjoying yoga & snapping up some amazing prizes. Read the Round-Up here.
In June we also released the first of a few films celebrating our accessible and inclusive studio culture! You can see the full film on our YouTube channel. We’d love it if you could like, subscribe, comment or share! Stay tuned for more films being release over the coming months.
Our teaching training program continues to be a vibrant and much-loved offering. We currently have 30 trainee teachers enrolled in our 200 hour program, with another group of eager yogis set to start in the Autumn (only 3 spots left in the October 2018 stream)! If you’re curious about teacher training, pop an email to email@example.com or check out Liz, Chiara or Anna’s blog posts.
We’ve also announced our 85-hour fully certified Pregnancy & Post-Natal Yoga Teaching training launching in October 2018, and there’s only 4 spots left already!
Yoga Quota’s bespoke retreats are up and running! Our August only has a few spots left, and we’re super excited about the next retreat planned for December 2018.
We announced our first Sponsors in June! Stretch Breathe Smile and Breadren.
Corrie is a familiar face at Yoga Quota, as she comes to teach workshops regularly (next one is 24 August), and Sal is an inclusive chef extraordinaire!
If you're a Yoga Quota client and book onto one of their amazing retreats, Corrie and Sal have generously committed to donating 10% of your booking cost to Yoga Quota, which will directly fund charity classes for vulnerable, marginalised and disadvantaged groups. We'll even be able to tell you which charities you've supported! One booking could support up to 4 charity classes!
Their next retreat is 10-15 September, in a stunning villa perched in the Italian mountainside. (you might even find our CEO, Harriet, there teaching a few classes in between pool swims and cooking workshops.)
A massive thank you to both Stretch Breathe Smile and Breadren for your incredible support.
In April, we welcomed Adam as our Operations Assistant. Adam is a Yoga Quota 200 hour teacher training graduate, studio teacher, and pillar of our Oxford community. He’s been doing a great job settling into the role.
