Yoga Quota's referral scheme, where our charity partners like Mind refer their clients to come and practice at the studio just like a regular studio client, has been one of YQ"s most successful approaches to spreading the benefits of yoga.
To date, we have over 78 referral clients, who practice at the studio for free. This means that not only do they benefit from the practice of yoga, but they also become engaged with our supportive and vibrant studio community.
In this incredible moving account, one referral client shares how their yoga practice has saved their life.
If you've ever wondered why YQ exists as a charity, or why you tally off after class, it's for this reason.

Venetia- Never before have I considered flying nearly 5000 miles to train with someone…. however when that someone is Bernie Clark, and he’s running a yin teacher training only at his home studio in Vancouver, I think you make an exception!
I would LOVE to come to one of Hannah's yoga classes where the self proclaimed Wave Junkie is playing this accordian-type-funky-instrument-thing! Our charity partners in Cornwall are so LUCKY!
Welcome Hannah to the Yoga Quota team! If you all want to check her out she is in Cornwall and her bio on our teacher page has the link to her site :)
Yoga Quota is now working with the (mostly US based) Accessible Yoga trust. Our missions align pretty much exactly- to make yoga accessible for vulnerable people. So me and Liz who is the UK person are chatting about how to work together. I'm envisaging a great support network for all our badge holders (teachers across the UK who do charity work for Yoga Quota) and also when I get a request for a charity class in some far flung area of the UK a network of friendly yoga teachers who might be able to become a badge holder and do that class!
Match made in heaven!
Watch this space for how it all goes :)
