Yoga Shack strives to make yoga accessible to all via affordable classes, as well as Karma and Community Yoga programs. Karma classes are donation based classes where 100% of all funds raised is donated to the specific charity of the month. Yoga Shack donates the space and teacher, while supporting charities in our community.
Supporting programs in our community is an important element in Yoga Shack's goals. Studio founder, Lisa Shackelton, was born and raised in London Ontario as were many of our teachers. Giving back to the Forest City in appreciation for programs that helped Lisa achieve her goals is still top priority at Yoga Shack: Mission Services, Humane Society, Kids Help Phone, & Junior Achievement to name a few. Additionally, medical charities for programs near and dear to our hearts: Heart and Stroke Foundation, MS Society, ALS and Diabetes Association.
