Donate to SWY

Support from donations is critical in helping us create access to yoga and its capacity to empower, heal, and inspire. Any amount helps. In fact, $10 buys a mat for someone who doesn’t have one.


Giving to SWY helps sustain our ongoing outreach programming in Middle Tennessee and beyond, providing free yoga and meditation to over 2,500 students monthly at 75+ community partner locations. It also helps support our daily operations, teacher continuing education, forging new partnerships, and community building events.

“Yoga grounds us. Especially after working our bodies and minds out so hard the rest of the week, it’s good to have some time to release the stresses of life––both mentally and physically.”

“Yoga and mindfulness has helped our students and staff have opportunities to regulate and manage stress. It provides a positive connection between the body and the mind and helps contribute to students being able to focus, increase energy levels, and take care of their bodies.”

East Nashville Magnet Middle School Counselor

“I was really able to relax, and I actually used the technique over the weekend. I have a lot of anxiety and it was very helpful in calming me down.”

The Next Door participant


Every dollar you donate directly supports our mission to bring free yoga to the Nashville community.

For example, $10 a month would buy mats for a classroom of children. $20 a month makes our free outdoor community yoga possible. For $50 a month, you make one year of yoga possible at a community partner location with two rotating teachers. A gift of $100 a month helps upkeep our donation based Community Studio, offering $10 yoga to all. 

Your gift makes a world of difference.

“With the support of Small World Yoga, my students are able to turn fatigue, frustration, and hopelessness into energy, excitement, and optimism.”

Vanderbilt University Professor
