Haven Yoga Studio is a new Indianapolis yoga space where people of different identities can gather, cultivate community, and practice together. We seek to center black women and other marginalized groups without a dedicated safe space to explore and practice yoga and access holistic health services.
Our work at Haven is to be another home for our community members and practitioners.
Please consider supporting our fundraiser and Stay tuned for more about our grand opening — including all the fun goodies we have planned for you! November 2018, y’all!
WE WANT TO STAY IN TOUCH
We invite you to take all of the space you need. Inhale. . . Exhale 💜
We are learning so much in this process of becoming....
1) Our community is Dope! The interview with @tanae.howard and @fox59 and the pickup by BET have resulted in over 140k views, thousands of shares, and comments, and messages. We haven’t even opened yet and have had people from all reaches of Indy (and beyond) trying to support our mission. We luh y’all 😍
2) Our fundraiser has raised over $4000 to support the construction and initial costs to getting the space open. @y12sr donated 20 brand new, high quality yoga mats for our students. We are partnering with Managed Health Services (MHS) @managedhealthservices and Indiana based insurance company that offers the heath programs Hoosier Healthwise, Hoosier Care Connect Medicaid, and the Healthy Indiana Plan-HIP to offer free classes to members of these plans (more details soon!!)
3) Construction, especially on a commercial space, almost NEVER happens as quickly as projected. We’ve had a couple of setbacks that have slowed down our progress. There was also an unfortunate mishap with our original plan for flooring and are looking to raise $2000 in the next two weeks to purchase a brand new floor for the space. Our new open date is projected for the first week of December (1.5 months after we hoped 🤦🏾♀️). 4) We are hiring teachers and building out the schedule so stay posted about when you can sign up for classes!
5) We are working on a FAQ to answer some reoccurring questions about our studio.
This space is being cultivated with so much love, intention, and care we can’t wait to share with you!! 🤗
