Matching Gift Campaign

Gentle Yogis recently received a matching gift of $2500 to support the continuation of the Shared Abundance Fund (SAF) through the end of 2022. As a reminder, the SAF is our model for providing community support to those unable to fully fund their own membership. Read more below.

This is how the matching challenge works:  when you give $10, it will be matched by the anonymous contributor so that your $10 turns into $20; when you give $100, it turns into $200, etc. 

When the full $2500 is matched, we will reach our goal of $5000 to provide access to the Breath Practice for a number of deserving members for the remainder of 2022.

One-time contributions in any amount will be tremendously appreciated and will make a meaningful difference. Setting up a recurring contribution would significantly support long-term sustainability. If you choose a recurring contribution, a five-month total will be calculated to enable the release of a matching amount, helping us to access the full $2500 gift.

We appreciate Venmo and personal checks. See these options displayed below the white and orange contribution box.

Note: We are not a 501(c)(3); your contributions are not tax-deductible.

Support Access for All –
Regular Yoga Practice

The Shared Abundance Fund

We recognize that financial abundance is not everyone’s reality. Some of us are just getting by, some of us may be struggling, while others of us have more than enough or are somewhere in between.

Rudy and Joyce and members of the Gentle Yogis Community are committed to providing equal access to on-going Gentle Yoga offerings and the benefits of a regular practice of yoga. One way to move toward balance in our corner of the yoga world is to invite those among us who have ample discretionary resources to contribute to the Shared Abundance Fund to support access for those among us who have less.

  • If you feel drawn to the practice of Gentle Yoga (whether it be Breath, Chair, or Mat) and none of the options in our pricing structure are manageable for you at this time, please click here to sign up for support from the Shared Abundance Fund.
  • If you would like to contribute to this fund, we encourage you to do so as you feel moved. If you would like a status report of what the needs are, please inquire. Options for making a contribution include credit card, Paypal, Venmo, and personal check (look below the Donorbox widget for the latter 3 options).

Thank you so much. It’s a pleasure and an honor to be of service.
We feel blessed to be part of this wonderful Gentle Yogis Community.

Rudy and Joyce

I feel something, see something, hear some thing, choose something, un-think something and learn something new with every Practice you guide, Rudy. You are one of my greatest gifts of this pandemic and my certain anchor – how you and Joyce stay committed to us, it is a generosity and a service grander than Grand.
