November Dharma Initiative: Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Greater Western Carolinas Chapter
This month Y2 proudly supports The Greater Western Carolinas Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in our Dharma initiative.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.
Vision: A world without type 1 diabetes
Mission: Accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications
Why we fight type 1 diabetes: Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. And, at present, there is no cure.
In T1D, your pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone the body needs to get energy from food. This means a process your body does naturally and automatically becomes something that now requires your daily attention and manual intervention. If you have T1D, you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity throughout the day and night.
However, insulin is not a cure for diabetes. Even with the most vigilant disease management, a significant portion of your day will be spent with either high or low blood-sugar levels. These fluctuations place people with T1D at risk for potentially life-threatening hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic episodes as well as devastating long-term complications such as kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, blindness and amputation. Learn more about T1D.
About the Y2 Dharma Initiative:
Every Sunday our 5:15 p.m. class is dedicated to support a local non-profit that serves our community. This class is 100% donation-based — that means we don’t take out of your class-passes! Just come, class pass or not, and pay-what-you-can. All proceeds go to the organization we are supporting.

Y2 brings something new everytime! I have never known a gym or exercise studio that has its students thinking about the next time they can get back for a class while walking out of one all hot and sweaty. but we all do it! y2 is magnetic ! even on a day when you can find plenty of excuses to keep you from exercising, you know you will miss something special if you don’t go to class. so even in the cold rain , in dead of winter , when you barely get the kids to school in time or have time after work to turn back around to cotswold- you make it happen! inspiring! challenging! empowering! Such a welcoming staff and excellent instructors! i highly recommend Y2 because they always make room for your mat and it just feels so good !
I love, love, love y2! I’ve worked out my whole life, lifting weights, running, spinning, etc and I have never been in better shape than I am now. I’ve actually worked in fitness starting a national corporate sales department for a very large fitness chain. I’ve been to other yoga studio, I’m from NYC (there’s one on every corner) and I promise you, y2 is by far the best!!! I joined, referred 6 other people AND I take my 4 yr old daughter every Saturday. By the way, I’m not friends with anyone there, (obviously I say hello to the staff and they know me) but no one asked me to write anything about Y2, this is the 1st review I’ve ever given promoting something because I truly believe the instructors and staff are really amazing at their job. It has changed my body and mind for the better! Keep up the great work!
Without hesitation, The Best Yoga Studio in Charlotte. The owner, Tanner Bazemore, brings a unique quality to Yoga that you just cannot find anywhere else. He is the most well rounded instructor I have seen, integrating training styles into his yoga practice that come from years of experience, not only with yoga, but with total strength and conditioning. You WANT to be a part of everything that is Y2Yoga! It’s a lifestyle.
Great studio for all levels of practice. A sanctuary from life which is student service oriented. A wealth of instructional talent provides hands on teaching and assists. Won’t find a larger and more convenient schedule anywhere. This even includes Thanksgiving and Christmas. Been to several studios and have not found the energy and great vibes that Y2 has to offer.
And very friendly to tigers! 🙂
