M3Yoga and Nuçi’s Space are teaming up until June to host select community yoga classes at a discounted rate of $8. This partnership will help raise money for the nonprofit organization, whose main goal is to prevent suicide and eliminate stigmas associated with mental illnesses.
M3Yoga co-owner Matt Chambers said that one part of the reason the yoga studio decided to team up with Nuçi’s Space is because it wanted to give back and make yoga more affordable, as reported in the Red & Black.
“It was a way to make yoga more accessible, while also just helping out Athens and just giving back to the town that has given a lot to us,” Chambers said.
Chambers said the reason why they chose Nuçi’s Space as the nonprofit partner is because both businesses focus on mental health and its importance in the Athens community.
“We believe in a lot of what they do, we’re big on mental health,” Chambers said. “Yoga does a lot for your mental health and one of our biggest passions in working out in that area.”
The three m’s in M3Yoga stand for mind, matter and movement. Chambers said this concept fits into Nuçi’s Space’s purpose perfectly.
“It’s that mind component that’s already there. [Nuçi’s Space’s] movement is a movement on raising awareness for mental health. We both are connected via mind or via movement. It’s connecting their values to ours,” Chambers said.
Chambers said that with these community classes, every yoga session will be different, including who teaches them. Although M3Yoga is partnering with Nuçi’s Space until June, the yoga studio will choose a new nonprofit every quarter.
“I think Athens is blessed with a lot of nonprofits and I am not worried about finding partners,” Chambers said. “I think it’s going to be exciting to meet all these people that we’ve been watching on the outside.”
The discounted community classes, with a drop-in cost of $8, will be chosen monthly. The current community classes offered are Warm Vinyasa on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. and Flow & Yin on Fridays at 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit M3Yoga’s website.
