Giving Back

At Ume Yoga, we look to give back to the community. We have given back to these institutions:

East Bay Innovation Academy

EBIA is rethinking how schools are run and structured, so that they better reflect the needs of a 21st century world. Most schools have not changed their structure, organization, facilities or instruction in over 50 years. While schools have not changed, our world has, leaving many of our schools, even the “best” ones, behind.  EBIA offers a powerful option for Oakland families and educators to build a diverse school that addresses the needs of the 21st century and beyond.

Rise Yoga for Youth

We are so excited to be partnering with RISE Yoga for Youth! RISE is an amazing organization that brings yoga and wellness education to schools and youth organizations in the bay area to empower students to lead healthy lifestyles.

Join us for class every Thursday from 4-5pm. Classes are donation based with all proceeds going to RISE. Cash or check made payable to RISE only. Suggested donation $15. Thank you!!

Girls Inc.

We believe generations are transformed when girls are equipped with knowledge, information and confidence. They grow up strong, smart and bold. At Girls Inc. of Alameda County, when girls, ages 5-18 are engaged in our award-winning programs, they develop the essential skills and tools they need for college, career and life success. Our process: we begin with building foundations in literacy and support girls developmentally with each milestone along the way, including academic achievement, positive risk taking, health and fitness, advocacy, leadership and more. We’re unique in that we serve the whole girl and her family by providing on-site mental health counseling as well. Our nationally developed programs are the result of studies conducted by the Girls Incorporated National Resource Center – the largest and most comprehensive research center on girls in the country.
