Our Giving Back Program:
Yoga for Social Change
Helping Others is at the Heart Of What We Do
Since it’s beginning in 2016, Pure Flow Yoga’s mission and essential living philosophy has been to help support and create positive social change through the practice of Yoga, Education, Community-building & Joy-Spreading.
Along with our own direct community initiatives, $15 USD / retreat student is donated to a group of beautiful grassroots charities with proven records of delivering contributions and services to effect positive social change.
Additionally, as part of our super-simple Affiliate Program, we also offer you the option to gift your referral earnings to one of these beautiful charities.
In 2019, we are grateful to have offered over $3500 USD to our GiveBack project,
and we are hoping to double that in 2020 with your help!

Art to Healing & Yoga for Freedom
Art to Healing empowers women and girls globally who have been sold into sex slavery to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives free from trauma, exploitation and abuse.
They believe that to transform the unimaginable physical and emotional trauma these women and girls have experienced into self-love, resilience and self-compassion, awareness and kindness need to be brought to the physical experiences within the body.
This incredible organisation, created and sustained by Pure Flow Yoga teacher Atira Tan, supports women and girls to transform their lives and heal their bodies through expressive art therapies, Somatic Experiencing TM, trauma informed yoga and mindfulness based practices.
Change starts at home, with ourselves and how we choose to consume and dispose of our waste.
Giving back to our home community here in Thailand, is a beautiful opportunity to inspire, connect and create plastic-free and sustainable solutions for the people, land and oceans.
We are committed to helping provide and maintain free community meditation spaces in the form of the Labyrinth, where we host a New Moon ceremony each cycle,
and we also help to create and support weekly karma clean-ups for our bays, and reduce availability of single-plastic-use consumables. Pure Flow Yoga is the primary financial supporter of the Labyrinth, and is heading the movement to “Green the Bays by 2020”.
