“We believe that the road to a better world begins with individuals exploring their vulnerability, creativity and spirituality.
Another Space’s mission is to actively contribute to a culture where self-work is received with curiosity, courage and love.
We started our project in May of 2015 by opening the doors to Vancouver’s very first community-based creative arts therapy studio. Since, we have grown into something that is more than just a physical space.
Another Space has evolved into a platform that promotes workshops around personal growth and healing by helping to increase their value and visibility.
We hope that this new vision for Another Space impacts our society to become a more loving place.”

“DAYA: translates as mercy or compassion; and Delivering Accessible Yoga Alternatives.
The DAYA Foundation was founded by Sarahjoy Marsh in conjunction with two of the members of the board of directors, Jay Gregory and Mark Altenhofen, who envisioned a vibrant center for yoga therapy, mindfulness, and the integration of East and West, Mind and Body, contemplative and active processes. The DAYA Foundation was formed to support humans to develop, recover, evolve, and transform. We provide education and therapeutic interventions to encourage psychological and physical integration and well-being. Founded on the strength of amrita: a sanctuary for yoga, Sarahjoy’s yoga center of 12 years, the DAYA Foundation specializes in Delivering Accessible Yoga Alternatives through its on site programs: amrita yoga, adaptive yoga, yoga and strength conditioning, yoga and addiction, and mindfulness and yoga programs.”
