“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”- Dr. Martin Luther King Junior

Seva is a Sanskrit word originating from the root, sev, which means, “to go toward.”


Seva can be loosely translated to me selfless service. The concept of seva captures not only the idea of acting freely for the good of others, but can be understood as the desire and action of giving with no hope or expectations to receive in return. We believe that Seva is a natural and intrinsic way that we relate to one another and as such, it is one of three pillars that give light to the vision that is Sacred Chill {West}.

Some ways that we practice Seva are:

Donation Based Classes

Once a month we host donation based classes to benefit Atlanta Based Nonprofit organizations that serve our neighborhood, educate and nurture the next generation, and/or seek to provide basic needs and support to those who are marginalized.

Volunteering with our neighborhood {public} school

We provide a yoga or mindfulness practice for parents and students at Bolton Academy.

Community Garden

We are proud to be a community partner with our neighbors over at Jim Adams Farm.

Official Partner with Local Yoga Based Nonprofit

Studio Partner to local nonprofit Cultivate Union.

Offering School Teacher Discounts

Teachers receive a 15% discount with valid I.d.

Taking it off the mat

At least once a year our co-owners, teachers, and students participate in a service project as a collective.
