Donations and Grants
Sala Reach offers free classes, and and donation based workshops and events to support health and resilience in bodies, particularly those affected by trauma and stress; youth, veterans, first responders, law enforcement, people in recovery or coping with addiction in their family system. Our program is supported by individual donations and volunteers, and by foundations and community organizations.
We are grateful that our 2021 and 2022 programs have received support from The LANL Foundation. We resonate with their vision: that all New Mexicans have the skills and confidence they need to be self-sufficient, lifelong learners who are engaged with their community.
We are also a recipient of a grant from the Taos Community Foundation (announced June 2022). Grants from these foundations help support our teachers, many who travel to Questa to teach in our community. Funding like this sustains their efforts and our expanding programs.

We believe in building health through moving arts and strive to make vital resources more available, especially to youth. A right to health is fundamental and healthy individuals are the foundation of a thriving community.
All of our movement classes promote nervous system regulation and can help support individuals’ health and resiliency, particularly in bodies affected by trauma and stress.
Sala Reach sponsors individuals, removing any financial barrier, so they may attend as many weekly classes at the studio as they choose. Sala Reach strives to ease any barriers by welcoming individuals who may feel uncomfortable or unwelcome for reasons of age, ability, experience (trauma) or background.
We grow by acknowledging and respecting our histories, considering how we are bound together, and how we might live best in a changing world. Celebrating community through events, music, and story-telling reinforce communal bonds and a vital sense of belonging.
