What is Seva?
“Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment.
Seva, the practice of selfless service, is thought to originate from two forms of yoga, Karma Yoga, the yoga of action, & Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of worship inspired by divine love.
At Mala Yoga Center, we are dedicated to uplifting our community & will always donate when we are able. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve our community.

Mala Yoga is committed creating a diverse, equitable, accessible, & inclusive space for all identities to share their love of yoga. We are committed to increasing diversity in the yoga community, which is why we have created the Allyship Fund, a community donation based fund.
If paying full price for our yoga classes or memberships is not financially feasible for you, please apply for the Allyship Fund Membership! We are ALWAYS accepting new applicants & want to work with you to create accessible yoga based on your needs, your life.
By donating to the Allyship Fund, you are helping to create a more balanced representation in the yoga community & aid in closing the wellness gap & breaking barriers for underserved communities. We hope that the Allyship Fund will help by sharing knowledge, resources, community, & a safe space for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, QTPOC, & disabled communities.
Any & all donation amounts are welcome. We match these donations dollar for dollar. Help us in creating a more equitable & empowering space at Mala Yoga.
