Yoga Makes Change 2017:
Join a global movement of hope and healing

Calling yoga teachers, studios and yogis:
Be a changemaker and Host a yoga class this November.

Pledge an hour and a half of your time this November or donate directly to Yoga Makes Change, a month-long service project that brings yoga to the underserved. By joining this global community of changemakers, you’ll have an opportunity to give, learn, grow – and share the life-changing gift of yoga with those who might otherwise never experience the transformational practice.

All tax-deductible donations support Give Back Yoga’s mission of bringing the therapeutic benefits of yoga to those who are vulnerable – helping people overcome addiction and eating disorders, reducing stress and anxiety of veterans and victims of trauma, increasing survival rates for cancer patients and more. Join us in raising awareness and making change in the lives of those who can benefit most.
