Yoga is about bettering yourself as an individual, but we believe it is also about working together to make a better community. Power Life Yoga knows that it’s people who make our studios thrive, and that’s why its so important to support the communities where our students live and work. We are inspired by the amazing people around us and it motivates us everyday to make the world a better place.
Power Life Yoga has raised or given nearly $50,000 to local charities like:
- Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Central Iowa
- The Hannah Geneser Foundation
- West Des Moines Community Schools
- The American Cancer Society
- The Give Back Yoga Foundation
- And more!
We have donated more than 300 class packages (totaling close to 2,000 classes) at a cost of almost $30,000 to organizations like:
- ALS Association
- Rally Against Cancer
- The Iowa Clinic Healthcare Foundation
- Ronald McDonald House
- Animal Rescue League
- And more!
For over three years, we have offered more than 450 free classes inside our studios and more than 400 classes outside of Power Life Yoga — almost one free class per day — to businesses, parks, schools, events, prisons, day cares, charities, health events, races, walks/runs and even the Iowa State Fair.
We never wanted to be some anonymous yoga studio. We want to be an integral part of our community, and that means assuming some of the responsibility for making it great. We promote healthy minds and bodies which helps build healthy neighborhoods where people are happy and free. We give back because our home has given so much to us, more than we could ever repay. But that doesn’t stop us from trying.
