UNWIND Yoga Gives Back

Here at UNWIND, we believe that giving back is just as important as joining in. 

Karma
Classes
Community
Classes
Events

We wouldn't exist as a studio without our wonderful community around us. So we try to take part and give back as much as possible! Whether it's participating in 5Ks, town fairs, or hosting classes and events at our studio to raise money for charities, we try to spread a little good karma whenever and wherever we can. 

 

In Our Studio

Here at UNWIND we host a variety of classes and events in our studio that benefit even those who don't practice yoga. From Karma Classes that raise money, Community Classes that help inspiring yogis, and free meditation and yoga classes for those in need, we try to help in a variety of ways.

 

Karma Classes are free donation-based classes we hold to raise money and awareness for different organizations in and around our community. To date, we've raised over $1,000 for various organizations, and look forward to raising more in the future.

 

So far, we've held Karma Classes that benefited:

Every month, we host Momcology Caregiver Coffee Breaks with the support of Momcology and local businesses. These Coffee Breaks are where moms of pediatric cancer patients can join us in a free yoga class and, afterwards, for free bagels, snacks, and conversation at Bagel Cafe next door. Momcology also provides retreat opportunities for parents of a child diagnosed with cancer, and co-owner Aubrey volunteers to bring yoga and meditation from UNWIND to these events. 

We also believe in supporting new yoga instructors on their yoga journeys. Our Community Classes are free yoga classes that give new teachers a chance to show off their skill and perfect their teaching. It also gives our yoga students a chance to get to know new teachers and put some variety into their routine! 

Other classes and charities we've taken part in or hosted: 

  • Free yoga and meditation classes for pediatric cancer caregivers to help with stress and anxiety during this challenging time.

  • Private meditation sessions in coordination with the Silver Liming Foundation to help a patient through their cancer journey.

  • Gifting a yearly unlimited membership to a pediatric cancer warrior from Summit.

Around Our Community

 

Hosting events in our studio isn't all that we do. Getting out into the community and spreading some yoga knowledge and wellness is also something we're passionate about. Yoga is proven to have physical and mental benefits, so we're always excited about bringing the practice out into the community.   

In October 2018, UNWIND was a proud participant of the New Providence Street Fair! That same month, we were also among the vendors at the Chatham School's Wellness Fair.

In April 2018, we held a donation-based meditation class at Grace's House to benefit The Valerie Fund. Grace's House was a designer show house in honor of Aubrey's daughter, Grace, and helped raise money for The Valerie Fund's Green Light Initiative to help provide comprehensive care to kids with cancer and blood disorders and their families. 

On June 2, 2019, UNWIND was a proud sponsor of the NJ Sharing Network's 5K Run. Aubrey even led the pre-run stretch!

Also at the beginning of June, we held a free yoga event at the New Providence Community Pool for kids and teens. Yoga teaches us to slow down and how to better handle everyday life, so it's always a joy to bring some yoga knowledge to the younger generations. 

On August 6, we were excited to participate in National Night Out! We were among the sponsors and vendors supporting a great family night out in New Providence.

We've also given back by making donations to or providing baskets for giveaways at:
