ABOUT US

 

OUR MISSION

awaken. transform. give back.

We believe that the methodology of classical yoga (including asana, breathing, and meditation) is a tangible tool for transforming human consciousness. The experience of yoga is to go beyond separateness, alienation, and diversity and fully recognize the fundamental unity of the universe and the underlying connectedness among all beings, communities, nations and religions.

This experience takes us from “self-centered” to ”community-centered” and beyond. We believe 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.

ACTION
Give Back Yoga Foundation believes in making yoga available to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the transformational benefits of this powerful practice. We do this by supporting and funding certified yoga teachers in all traditions to offer the teachings of yoga to under-served and under-resourced socio-economic segments of the community and inspire grassroots social change and community cooperation.
