about skinnibuddha yoga
skinnibuddha exists to provide affordable accessible yoga and yoga therapy to the people of Plymouth.
In 2012 a group of us set up London's first donation based yoga studios, in Oxford Street and Blackfriars. Men and women were able to attend yoga classes without the need to pay for monthly subscriptions or expensive prices. A community of people interested in their personal health was developing, but it was not based on income.
After the success of the London project we decided to do something similar back home in Plymouth. We began teaching as a skillshare, swapping a yoga class for other skills such as graphic design, web design, plumbing, carpentry, accountancy.
In 2016 we started using community spaces to offer yoga therapy on a donation basis. We couldn't keep up with the demand and needed to find more venues to work in.
We still offer Yoga Therapy as a skillshare, so we hold onto our initial vision of affordable yoga
