KARMA PROJECT INITIATIVES
At Medwell Spa and Yoga Academy, we are guided by the principle of always helping others.
"There are still so many helpers- so many caring people in this world." Mr. Rogers
Aside from offering the most compassionate yoga instruction pricing in the industry, and reducing barriers to entry for all interested participants by providing all access options and welcoming, diverse class offerings, our Karma Project Initiatives remain central to all that we do.
Our Karma Project Initiatives are lead by Jesse Ruggerie, yoga instructor and recipient of the coveted 2020 Heart for Heros award, presented by the Abbott House. Jesse's outstanding dedication to helping others and providing support to those whose lives have been traumatized in a myriad of ways provides the guiding platform and ongoing inspiration for the Medwell Karma initiatives.
Our Yoga Alliance Accredited Yoga Teacher Training Program currently requires a minimum number of Karma Project work as a requirement of graduation.
In addition, we work closely with organizations that speak to our hearts including:
The Abbott House for at risk kids in need
yearly warm coat and non perishable food drives
Team Red White and Blue
The Veterans Project
back to school supply drives
pet food and pet supply drives
"Let's Breathe Together"
and most recently "Project Laptop" which has a goal of providing 20+ new Chromebooks for students who otherwise would not have access to the technology in support their remote, hybrid and online learning models.
We continue to develop our extensive workshop offerings to include additional trauma therapy, diversity appreciation and mindful meditation in support of a harmonious community.
