Yoga Readiness Initiative: sharing yoga with our military
Help us bring 10,000 Yoga Readiness Kits to active duty service members and their families.
From our inception, one of Give Back Yoga’s primary focuses has been sharing yoga with veterans. We are one of the few organizations supporting free yoga and meditation resources that can help veterans and their families to heal from the traumas they experience through deployment. To date, we have sent free resources to more than 20,000 veterans around the world.
The Yoga Readiness Initiative builds upon this work, and broadens our focus to reach active duty military service men and women and their families. Through the help of corporate partners, service organizations and volunteers, this project shares free yoga field kits with military personnel who are serving at bases across the country and around the globe. This gift is extended in a spirit of gratitude for those who serve – offering tools that can help service men and women connect with strength, calm and inner peace when it’s time to be “at ease.”
Each Yoga Readiness Kit contains:
Mat & Props
For a yogi, the mat is home base – a place to return to for grounding, clarity and peace. Through the support of corporate sponsor Gaiam, each Yoga Readiness Kit contains a mat, block and strap to support a service member in exploring a personal practice.
