Our DAYA Commitment
Translation: mercy or compassion DAYA: Delivering Accessible Yoga Alternatives
DAYA provides inclusive, accessible, trauma-informed, brain-sensitive, neuro-biologically-grounded, evidence-based practices for physical and mental health and vitality to schools, prisons, hospitals, and rehab centers.
In 2016, we delivered 28,000 hours of yoga, mindfulness, and trauma-informed programming. In 2017, by year end we will provide 30,000 hours.
In 2016, we provided $24,000 in medical scholarships. In 2017, by year end we will provide $27,000 in medical scholarships.
The DAYA Foundation was founded by Sarahjoy Marsh and Jay Gregory who envisioned a vibrant yoga studio, a center for yoga therapy, mindfulness, and the integration of East and West, Mind and Body, and contemplative and active processes.
They also envisioned a passionate community of practitioners whose lives would feel more whole, vital, and interconnected by a shared commitment to socially-conscious yoga, offered to all those in need.
