Welcome to Yoga by Donation in Downtown Portsmouth, NH
Launched on January 1, 2009 by a longtime Portsmouth resident and yoga teacher, Bob Vaccaro, Yoga by Donation's mission is to provide quality yoga and related classes for people at all levels of physical and financial ability. With no set or even suggested fees, all donations are anonymous and all are appreciated.
With over 20 extraordinary instructors who volunteer their time, we offer over 40 regularly-scheduled classes each week - all are multi-level and open to beginners and drop-ins. See Statistics to view our growth in classes, attendance and donations. Our handicapped-accessible studio (see photos) is all-wool carpeted and our heavy relaxation blankets are all-cotton. Our wall sconces are on dimmers, our waiting room is sound-insulated from the studio and includes two changing rooms; two unisex bathrooms are a few steps down the hall.

"I am delighted to teach at Yoga by Donation and proud to be part of a yoga studio that anyone can attend." - Abby Gaul

Clothing, Perfumes, Mats and Serious Illness
Please wear clothing that is readily available to you, comfortable and loose-fitting. Students wear shorts, tights, sweats or baggy pants of all types. Barefoot is recommended but not required; we do ask that you take shoes off and leave them in the waiting room. Please no perfumes, colognes or candles of any type, as some students have severe allergic reactions to them. We have plenty of mats available to loan and we also provide mat storage for students who want to leave their mats at the studio.
Remember: it is the student's responsibility NOT to come to class if you have a bad cold, flu or serious illness which can be readily transmitted to your fellow yogis!
