Yoga Studio Hopes to Expands to Parklet and Vegan Café

After five years of teaching yoga classes, San Francisco-based Laughing Lotus studio plans its expansion.

Laughing Lotus, a San Francisco-based yoga studio founded by vegan activist Jasmine Tarkeshi, has taken to online fundraising website Kickstarter to raise $20,000 for an expansion. Along with the development of a café, Laughing Lotus plans on converting a parking lot into a mini-park where people can practice yoga and look at art from Creativity Explored, a studio where people with disabilities can make art together. Supporters can pledge a minimum of $25 and receive a complementary treat once the café is open, or pledge $1,000 or more and receive a private yoga class or an exclusive surprise gift bag courtesy of Laughing Lotus, among other gifts. The café will offer vegan cookies, chai drinks, and more.
