Saying farewell to our friends at Yoga By Design Foundation

See below for a message from our friends at Yoga By Design Foundation.

Dear YBDF Friends and Supporters,

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we write to inform you that the Yoga by Design Foundation will cease operations in mid-2022.  After deep and mindful consideration, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to dissolve our beloved foundation, an action not taken lightly but deemed necessary in light of our financial situation. 

Founded in 2011, Yoga By Design Foundation has brought the healing practices of Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation to hundreds who were in need. With your support, an amazing group of dedicated, highly trained yoga instructors in Michigan have planted the seeds of hope and peace throughout many under-resourced and under-served local communities.  Yoga is a journey, not a destination.  We may never experience the fruits of the work that has been done, but we know that YBDF has made a difference in their lives.

With funds raised at our 2021 Yogathon, as well as recent grants and donations, we are pleased to be able to continue our programs through June of 2022. We are no longer accepting donations but assure you that all previous monies donated will be used in the service of our mission.

Sending love and light this holiday season,
Lynn Medow, President Emeritus & Founder
Sarah Williams, Executive Director & President
