The Yoga Seed Collective is organized as a non-profit organization. As a non-profit, we have a Board of Directors that is part of our leadership structure.
Yoga has such a positive impact on the health and well being of individuals and the community that we are fully committed to the vision of having yoga available for everyone. It is an honor to be able to serve our community in growing vibrant and extensive yoga programs in many locations. We hope that in addition to practicing with us, you will consider volunteering for Yoga Seed and donating if you are able. Yoga Seed is our organization and our growing community. It needs lots of love and attention to grow to its fullest potential. Hope you will consider how you can participate!

Would you like to be on our team? Yoga Seed is a non-profit organization, which means our work is about community service and all revenues are used to operate our programs. Part of being a non-profit is having a Board of Directors that works with our staff to set policy, make decisions, and represent Yoga Seed in the community and work on fund raising. Board Members are stewards of the organization, responsible for ensuring our mission is fulfilled. If you love what Yoga Seed brings to our community and want to see our studio and outreach programs grow, please consider becoming a Board Member. It is a wonderful opportunity to serve our Yoga Seed community as well as the many people we want to reach with yoga services. All are welcome to apply. Board Members volunteer their time, and need to be able to devote 15-30 hours per month to this service. If this isn’t right for you perhaps you know someone that would be interested.
