January Dharma Initiative: Cross-Cultural Thresholds and Samaritans Feet
This month we are supporting Cross-Cultural Thresholds and Samaritans Feet.
Cross-Cultural Thresholds builds schools in Africa for children living in poverty. Our mission is not simply to build schools. Cross-Cultural Thresholds partners with grassroots leaders to create healthy and holistic learning environments that offer children a meaningful chance to break the cycle of poverty.
Samaritan’s Feet shares hope with children in the U.S. and around the world by washing their feet, giving them a new pair of shoes, and helping them believe that their dreams can come true. We at Samaritan’s Feet believe that a new pair of shoes can be a tangible foundation of hope to a person in need.
The son of one of our yogis is traveling to Nairobi, Kenya this month to visit one of the Cross-Cultural Threshold schools to deliver shoes to children and families in need. Here’s his letter…

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!
And very friendly to tigers!

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.
I LOVE IT!
Of course it is my studio…

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 !
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.
