embrace our communities

Embrace’s community initiatives reinforce our studio mission by supporting and assisting freedom, growth and joy in our local nonprofits and neighborhood businesses.

Local Nonprofits

Donation-based Yoga Class

Each quarter we host a 2-hr Recharge Your Love donation-based class bringing together a team of Embrace teachers and students, along with the staff and beneficiaries of our quarterly nonprofit partner. While raising funds for and awareness of our community’s needs, these heart-center practices restore vision, purpose and energy; because navigating change and making change requires a full heart. 100% of class contributions go directly to the organization. 

If you can't the attend, but want to help please make a donation.

Community Service Day

Embrace staff and students collaborate on local service day activities at local nonprofits

QUARTERLY PARTNER: BrainFood

Brainfood uses the power of food to engage, empower and employ DC teens and young adults. Programs engage teens in the kitchen to build competence, confidence, and connections. As Cooks in Training, teen participants learn fundamental culinary techniques and concepts, practice new skills through hands-on cooking in an industrial kitchen, taste a wide variety of ingredients and dishes, and explore a range of food systems topics. Brainfood also empowers returning participants to direct their own activities and make a positive change in their communities. Finally, the organizations provides teens and young adults with real-world employment opportunities in the growing local food sector. Through Brainfood Homegrown, young adults work in paid positions to operate, manage, and expand a growing snack food business. LEARN MORE AT: https://brain-food.org/
