SCYC Karma Initiatives are our way of giving back to the community around us through karma yoga, fundraising and volunteering opportunities that aim to make a difference in the Calgary community.
With each initiative we choose a grassroots organization that aligns with the SCYC’s values that will benefit from our fundraising efforts and volunteering opportunities. Funds are raised through karma yoga classes and other fundraising initiatives, such as the sales of Enlightened Delights (delicious, homemade, organic, vegan, raw, energy balls). All proceeds are directed to the selected organization and the Karma Initiative.
Karma Initiatives are also an opportunity to stay connected with the SCYC community over the cooler months when we are not able to hold Gatherings.

Spread The Love Karma Initiative
(February – April 2016)
SCYC raised $885 in donations to support YYC Helping Homeless through our February 14th Karma Class and the sales of Enlightened Delights over a two month period. The funds raised were used to buy over 300 pairs of new underwear, 100 pairs of socks and 140 toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste to hand out to Calgary’s homeless.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success, including our Support Studio, Yoga Passage, who provided us with studio space for our karma class and allowed us to hang out in their lobby to sell Enlightened Delights.
