We are dedicated to practicing what we teach and living what we practice. Giving back to the community we live in is a big part of this. And a big part of our studio philosophy. This is why our 'yoga off the mat' is dedicated to two local animal welfare organizations: Pesos for Paws and Help Tulum Dogs.
PESOS FOR PAWS
Pesos for Paws is founded by studio owner, Richelle Morgan, and is aimed at fundraising, events, fostering and improving the lives of street dogs and pups in Tulum, Mexico. Our donation-based Yoga teacher training graduation classes are dedicated to supporting this cause. A we will be creating humanitarian retreats aimed at giving back to the communities we visit on the retreats.

HELP TULUM DOGS
Help Tulum Dogs is a local non-profit organization founded by Cathy Carelli and Lisa Edwards. Richelle plays an integral part in this organization and is one of the key team members. HTD was created to improve the lives of street dogs in Tulum through fostering, education, sterilization clinics and adoptions.
Each one of us can make a difference in this world through our actions, big or small. Tulum's growth has meant that the amount of street dogs has increased. With no proper or solid government infrastructure in place, our furry friends rely on us to help them have a voice.
No act is too small, always remember that. And there are many ways that YOU can help. From fundraising to donations. Adopting or escorting. And sharing about our cause so others can help. Each step brings us closer to realizing a better life for animals in Tulum.
Help spread the word and share our cause through the icons below.

giving liberates the soul of the giver.”
