Every action is a seed. Plant the seed of yoga and mindfulness in Sacramento.
We currently have over 58 volunteers at The Yoga Seed giving up precious time and energy because they believe in our mission to provide accessible and trauma-informed yoga to our community. Our volunteers are the backbone of this organization and we could be more grateful of their integrity. Become a volunteer today to practice the yogic principal of seva (selfless service).
