We've been supporting the good works of charities in Chicago and beyond since we opened up Om.  It's what we do and part of who we are.  Whether it be hosting our Partner's Yoga Benefit every Valentine's Day or other yoga fundraisers through the years.  

And, YES, we love to support auctions and raffles for our neighborhood schools, churches/synagogues, non-profits, neighborhood organizations and more.   Would you like some yoga to put to good use to benefit the places where you volunteer? Email us and tell us about how you're helping out the community, details about your event and how to send you a yoga gift certificate for your fundraiser.  

When we have a yoga shindig, we raise the yoga roof and plenty of funds, too!  We keep our costs to zero so everything raised goes to charities.  We've raised tens of thousands for so many great causes. Some of the yoga benefits through the years have included:  

  • Yoga & Guitar for the People of Nepal to benefit Heart to Heart International
