Community

OVER $30,000 DONATED TO DATE! Savannah Yoga Center’s founder, Kelley Boyd is a native of Savannah and being deeply rooted in the community is the heart of Savannah Yoga Center. Twice a year (approximately every 6 mos.) we team up with a local non-profit to bring awareness and help raise funds for the non-profit.
