Non-Profit of the Month
Each month, 10% of the proceeds from yoga classes and massages taught/performed by Burg will go to a local non-profit organization.
Transparent Sneakiness & Circular Benefits
The local nonprofit organization obviously benefits by receiving a donation from Yoga Happiness. They also get more exposure via YHS's website, FB page, and Instagram posts. Also, perhaps YHS clients will privately donate by clicking the Donate Now button!
The Yoga Happiness Client
This is the super sneaky part.
Lots of research and evidence show the benefits of a regular meditation practice, being flexible, and other aspects of yoga as well as the benefits of massage.
Add to that the piles of evidence about the physical and neurological benefits of giving to others and practicing compassion.
You're double dosing on doing wonderful things for yourself which in turn benefits those around you!
Yoga Happiness Studio
More clients might choose a class at this studio (or online) and get a massage if they know it also supports a great local charity! Feel good marketing for the studio, is what that is. And Burg gets connections with local organizations. And, yes, getting these donations benefits the studio come tax time.
