Summer Community Partners
Vive Yoga seeks to build community partnerships that uplift the Chicagoland community. We work closely with Chicago and international non-profits to bring awareness to their mission. Each month Vive Yoga will host weekly donation classes for our community partners. In addition, we will host monthly service opportunities for Vive Yoga members to be part of. Let us grow together through our practice of taking yoga off the mat.
Sunday Vive Community Yoga
Vive yoga hosts an ongoing Sunday Community donation class taught by one of our talented staff with all proceeds benefiting GirlForward. This is an all levels class from 10:30-11:30a.m.
GirlForward provides adolescent refugee girls with individual mentorship, educational programs and leadership opportunities, creating a community of support that serves as a resource and empowers girls to be strong, confident, and independent.

Vive Yoga Glow with the Flow events
For the month of July a portion of proceeds from our Glow with the Flow events will be donated to Between Friends non-profit.
About Between Friends:
Between Friends provides a safe, violence-free, supportive, self-help environment for individuals and families in crisis. Between Friends’ counselors empower individuals to make their own decisions and choices, rather than making choices for them. Between Friends helps victims and children to recognize that their experience is shared and that the problem of domestic violence is social and political.
Between Friends recognizes that sexism is a root cause of domestic violence, and as such, women are disproportionately the targets of this form of oppression. We also acknowledge that domestic violence is intrinsically linked to all systemic forms of violence, including heterosexism, cissexism, classism, racism, ageism, ableism, and sizism. Domestic violence affects everyone and our programs support all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, marital status, national origin, language capacity, or ability.
