I work with local Portland yoga studios to bring yoga mats to schools. The mats are used in P.E. and counseling programs. Without mats, it is difficult for teachers to include yoga and mindfulness in their curricula. I am delighted to help bring yoga tools to more students. Here are the schools I have outfitted with mats so far:
Whitman Elementary School
Sellwood Middle School
William Walker Elementary School
Laurelhurst Elementary School
Grant High School
My yoga studio partners include CorePower Yoga and Studio 508. Some of the donated mats are from studios’ lost and found bins. Others are obtained when studios replace their rental mats.
If your program would be interested in a mat donation, or in donating mats, please email me at BrightYogaPDX@gmail.com.
I could use help with this program! I need help with mat delivery, storage space, and studio/school outreach. Please email me if you’re interested in helping out.
