Seva - Azulfit's mission
At Azulfit, we do everything from the heart, because when you do things with love and care, true and lasting connections are made.
The practice of Pilates and yoga helps to feel better, and connects us with our highest potential, and allows us to recognise we are all connected – and as such, we must serve one another to raise our collective ‘vibration’.
The concept of Seva (selfless service) is an essential part of the devotional practice of yoga. This also builds strong bonds within communities and Azulfit’s goal is to spread yoga, Pilates and community as far and wide as we can, to match the beautiful and diverse students, guests and team that we have.
Azulfit supports the following charities and projects:
We love to support WCR as they respond to disasters and pop up in areas of greatest need. From Puerto Rico to the ongoing conflict in the Ukraine, our dinners to support WCR have raised thousands to date.
We are in our 4th year of supporting this amazing island initiative. Offering adaptive surf programs, and state of the art facilities for families with accessible sports, adapted bathrooms and expert support this amazing organization provides life-changing programs to those with disabilities and special needs. Water, beach, cycling and cultural activities are offered. This mission is close to our hearts and to date we have raised nearly 8K for this charity with the support of our guests.
Fuerteventura Dog Rescue exists to help the many homeless and abandoned dogs found on the Canary Island or Fuerteventura. As well as raising money to support sick and injured dogs on their journey back to health and happiness, the charity aims to re-home all dogs where possible with new foster or adoptive families. Azulfit are very proud to support this local charity on the island where we are based.

Supporting a nationwide network of food banks they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. Together with the amazing Rachel Blunt, we have raised 5K of our 6K goal for the Trussell Trust to date in 2023.
Yoga is a tangible tool for transforming human consciousness. The experience of yoga is to go beyond separateness, alienation, and diversity and fully recognise the fundamental unity of the universe and the underlying connectedness among all beings, communities, nations and religions. Give Back Yoga Foundation brings yoga to veterans, at risk youth, those recovering from eating disorders, and prisoners and uses yoga as a tool for change. Yoga takes us from “self-centered” to ”community-centered” and beyond. Give Back Yoga believes we can pass the gift of yoga, one person at a time, thus empowering individuals and building communities, and helping to reduce suffering in this world. We participate in an annual fundraising event to help support their various initiatives.
To break the cycle of poverty, education is the key. The women’s empowerment program is designed for disenfranchised and unemployable women to come and learn new skills through training, employment, and business development. The foundation of this program is to build confidence, foster initiative, and create true empowerment for local women. We have supported this program since 2018 and continue to support the organization and individual program graduates, who go on to start up their own tailoring businesses.
