Samatva Yoga Scholarships

We believe yoga should be accessible to real people in the real world. We recognize yoga is often only affordable to some and for many, the cost of yoga is a once-in-a-while luxury. Our Samatva Yoga Scholarship provides yoga at a more affordable price to individuals with financial need. Samatva can be translated to unity, equality, equanimity, or balance, and this is our small way of providing yoga to those who need some extra help getting to the mat.

We use a portion of our membership profits to allow others to receive a deep discount on membership rates through our Samatva Yoga Scholarships. We all rise when we lift each other up. One yogi at a time.

Fundraiser Campaigns


At Big River Yoga, we also value giving back to the greater community. In the service of giving, we host an annual donation campaign to a non-profit organization doing good work to make the world a more fair and equitable place for all. This takes place each November and we collect donations at our studio and host two Thanksgiving Day Fundraiser-based classes.

In past years we have donated to El Fundo Boricua for Puerto Rico hurricane aid, Haiti Outreach, Neighborhood House food shelf, Department of Indian Work, and Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center. Additionally, we host an annual yoga-style triathlon to benefit a non-profit and we donate to local events, fundraisers, and non-profit groups contributing to our community.
