LA CROSSE, Wis. -

Yoga studios in the La Crosse area are joining forces to help raise money for nonprofit organizations.

Every Saturday throughout the summer, a different yoga studio will host "Community Karma Yoga" at 11 a.m. in the morning at Pettibone Beach in La Crosse.

While the sessions are free, donations are recommended.

Each week, the money raised goes to different nonprofit groups in the area.

The instructor at Saturday's session said the goal for all the studios involved is to use their talents to help the community.

"We're just so happy doing this for the community," said Tammy Zee, the owner of Tammy Zee's Yoga Studio. "That's what karma means -- giving back. Yoga has helped me professionally (and) personally, and that's what all the instructors want to do, is give back to the community."
