Help Build Donation Based Yoga Shack in Kauai !


My dream is providing Kauai with a beautiful yoga studio space dedicated to the heart of the practice. The mission of Bhakti Yoga Shack   is precisely that- bringing community together through yoga in the spirit of selfless service.

For the last five years we have co-hosted a donation based yoga program on Kauai. Along with providing free community sunset yoga classes on the beach.

Freely sharing yoga personally means so much to me because I have seen first hand the benefits of yoga. Yoga changes lives. It helps people to not only be healthier physically but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. People's hearts are more open, become softer and their lives simply happier and more joyful for it!

My highest calling is giving back what was freely given to me. The Yoga Shack will celebrate just that; At the Yoga Shack working with Renata Widula  our fantastic yoga teacher and my dear friend, we will offer donation based yoga classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings; making yoga accessible and affordable to all members of our community, according to their financial means.

The Yoga Shack will enable people from all over the world to experience the yogic lifestyle, developing tangible life skills, while promoting health and wellbeing.
Renata Widula is a heart-based yoga teacher dedicated to the practice and teachings of yoga.

Renata trained in the Ashtanga practice in Thailand and has been volunteering for the Bhakti Yoga Shack  and hosting weekly donation based yoga classes on the beachfront of Kauai for the last 2-3 years. Renata offers yoga with the purest intention to be of SERVICE to the community, welcoming all to enjoy the benefits of yoga regardless of economic condition; trusting that it is in the giving that we truly receive.

Not only will yoga help those who are actively practicing it, but that inner peace will continue to spread and ripple out touching the lives of neighbors, friends, co-workers, families and children across the world. This amazing Yoga Shack space will also provide community classes for those who are interested in sustainable living skills, fresh food prep, container gardening, and much much more!

My hope is with your Help to gather together and share the love of yoga, by raising funds and community awareness for the need for building this donation based yoga studio “The Yoga Shack” on Kauai. 

I understand more than ever that I can not accomplish this goal without the support of others and my community. My intention is big and rooted in my belief that working from your heart you can accomplish immense tasks. My intention here is to raise $9440 for the Yoga Shack Project, but I can’t do it alone- I need your help!

When you donate to the "Yoga Shack" Seva fund you’re improving lives; yoga provides an immediate outlet to reduce stress in a safe and nurturing environment. It is a physical exercise that produces happy endorphins. While breathing exercises slow down the heart rate, relaxation techniques are powerful sources for calming the mind and the body. These are all tools that we can carry with us into any difficult life situation.

Supporting this project is a tangible way to practice seva, by living yoga’s teaching of selfless service to others.

Your contributions will literally make this community program a reality building the Yoga Shack block by block from roots up; creating a real donation based yoga studio; an active platform to help those in need and to ultimately make a difference to the lives of others.

Please join with us in bringing the Yoga Shack to life, lets bring donation based yoga and mindfulness to the people of Kauai and beyond.

Our Goal: is to accomplish this fund raising faze ASAP and open our doors for Thanksgiving November 26th,
Where will will be holding a huge community vegan thanksgiving dinner -so please help by giving what you can today!  My brother  is onisland and is already working on leveling the foundation site, We are standing by and ready to build when you are!
