Generosity

Practicing generosity, Aloha has a mission which includes helping the community at large.  Support for local non profits and other local businesses is top on our list.  Though we at Aloha are a for profit business, we give away our profits to help people.  
   Josephine is in her wisdom years and keeps no monetary value from her teaching or managing a yoga center.  When Josephine began teaching yoga, she was still in her householder stage of life and needed the extra income to support their four children. But even then, she vowed to give away 10% of all that she made to support the arts for children. She began the scholarship fund at Moco Arts, called the Moving Company then. The value in her teaching now comes to Josephine in watching yoga do its magic for folks.  

Following is a list of the non profits which Aloha has supported in our first three years.

Josephine, in her wisdom years, is generous with her time and with what limited knowledge she has accumulated about yoga over the 50 plus years of practice and study. At this stage of her life she enjoys teaching teacher training courses. These 2 pics were taken in Bali.
While back home, Josephine enjoys teaching yoga classes and workshops to our local yoga community. The pic is taken at Aloha in the Coral room. Josephine is teaching with her dear friend Prema Mayi chanting.
