The Amala Community Outreach, Scholarship, and Inclusion Program
Amala is committed to service and seeing prenatal yoga reach in need communities.
Amala Service Projects include:
Community Outreach Scholarship
Every year Amala donates one full ride scholarship to a motivated and dedicated community member to attend Amala’s 95 hour teacher training program. This community member and recipient agrees to bring prenatal yoga programming to an underserved community.
Women’s Retreat Partial Scholarship
This partial scholarship helps women in need be able to attend our very special woman’s retreat.
I Grow Chicago Prenatal Yoga Program
Amala is currently providing a scholarship and program support along with other partners such as Yoga Six and other community members to help bring a parental yoga program to the community of Englewood. Participate in one of our donation prenatal classes (at Yoga Six South Loop) benefiting this program or host one of your own! Learn more here or donate directly to I Grow Chicago naming the prenatal program as your recipient.
Other Program Funding
Donations made are gratefully received and help pay for:
Support for Amala's scholarship recipient to create and build a sustainable program. This include marketing, networking support as well as teacher compensation.
Support for ongoing funding in a non-studio hosted pre/postnatal class program in under served settings taught by other Amala graduates.

Yoni’s for a Cause
Amala co-founder Cassie Rodgers handcrafts these ceramic Yonis necklaces. Each one is hand molded, glazed and seeded with glass to mirror each woman's inner beauty. They are strung paired with a precious gemstone that activates the desired qualities you would like to nurture. A portion of the sales goes to help fund Amala’s inclusion programs.
