Save Yoga Northwest

Losing a home is a tragedy, especially if preventable. We love Yoga Northwest but there is a very real and immediate threat of closing our in-person studio due to the pandemic. Now is the time to donate and help save our cherished Yoga Northwest.
Yoga Northwest was officially founded in 1987 and the owner Ingela Abbott started teaching yoga in Bellingham 40 years ago. Yoga Northwest is one of the most highly-respected yoga studios in the Pacific NW and has been voted "Best Yoga Studio" for 15 years in a row. Yoga Northwest has helped thousands of people live a healthier and happier life for many decades. Let’s not allow covid to destroy your yoga home!

We need $40,000 by January 1st. And to begin, we need $20,000 by November 30th. Donate now!
Currently many yoga studios around the country are being forced to close their locations due to the pandemic. Two of our country’s largest and best yoga centers have recently closed due to covid; Unity Woods Yoga Studio in DC and Iyengar Institute of Los Angeles.
For Yoga Northwest, a fund-raising campaign begins today! Let’s keep our unique studio alive. We love our peaceful yoga sanctuary in a busy world, a place where we can come to stretch, breath and relax. A place for health and friendship. For many more years to come!
We need $40,000 by January 1st. And to begin, we need $20,000 by November 30th. Donate now!
