Donations & Grants
”I have an ongoing dream that those who want to work with me can – regardless of finances” – Laura Washington, ND
Donations and grants are used to provide naturopathic and energy healing sessions and yoga classes. Access to resources such as these, supporting health and well-being, should be available to all. Luminance Yoga Classes are offered at the greatly discounted rate of $5/class to make them accessible to all who would like to participate. As even $5 is more than some can afford, I also provide a coupon code for students to participate for free. This donation/grants page exists to help make services available to more people and to share how these donations and grants are used.
Thank you so much for your support!
100% of your donation is used to provide health and wellness services to someone who otherwise would not have access to these resources. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used well!

Recipients of grant supported services have also included people who have lost their jobs due to the 2020 pandemic, have domestic insecurity, and a single mother trying to finish school. If you are interested in receiving grant supported services please contact me!
