TVLA Fund: Pawsitive Vibes
TVLA YOGA started with a love for practicing yoga by someone who had an affinity for helping animals.
Janelle graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Biomedical Sciences and then immediately applied to the CSU Veterinary program. While waiting to hear if she was accepted into the graduate program – she found yoga.
After completing her first 200-hour yoga teacher training, she continued to further her education with 7 more fitness certifications within the following two years.
Over the last decade, she has helped facilitate over 30+ teacher trainings, lifestyle programs, and international yoga retreats. During her time in the studio space, she saw an opportunity to connect students to their personal alignment through the use of quality products / props. Partnered with that vision, she wanted to give back to give back to a community that doesn't always get the support it needs - veterinary medicine.
So that’s where the idea of TVLA YOGA started. It was a way to connect the yoga community with an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of animals who deserved a brighter and healthier future.
TVLA YOGA is named after our Golden Retriever “Tula” aka "Tuladandasana". She’s taught us how to love unconditionally, greet strangers with a smile, and to begin every day with an optimism only a dog can invoke.
Every year we are going to donate a portion of our proceeds to local Colorado clinics, shelters, and animal rescues. We want to help support vaccine clinics, food supplies, prescription needs, and surgery bills.
If you have any animal rescues near and dear to your heart, please send their info our way at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add them to our list for donations as we grow our small business.
