All Dharma Study Groups meet at The DAYA Foundation, located at 5210 SW Corbett Ave., Portland, OR 97239


Sarahjoy offers her teachings on a donation basis to the DAYA Foundation, so everything that you give will go directly to the Foundation. It is customary in yogic and Buddhist traditions to support teachers through the practice of Dana, or the spiritual act of giving from the heart for teachings that you value. A sliding scale suggested donation amount is $25. Your donations support students throughout the region who would otherwise not have access to the teachings of yoga or the dharma of life skills.
