"I met Kayoko in 2009. Yoga Gives Back was in its infancy and I was lucky to teach my very first event for this amazing organization. Since then I have been an ambassador for what is about to be 15yrs?! I’ve watched the enormous impact that this organization has had on women and children in India. But it has also had a huge impact on the yoga community here in the West. YGB’s events bring us together and they remind us that karma yoga and seva are important parts of our practice." - Sarah Ezrin

Yoga Gives Back is focused on giving back to India, especially to support the serious challenges of poverty and related social issues. With growing global support, we are empowering over 2400 women and children in India with a minimum five-year commitment to each person. Today, YGB’s “Sister Aid” program provides micro-loans to 550 mothers and primary education to 600 young girls and abandoned children. Our “SHE (Scholarship for Higher Education)” program offers 400 disadvantaged youths in Karnataka and West Bengal an opportunity to obtain college degrees.

It’s clear that the economic imbalance is lopsided, that impoverished mothers never even have a chance to relax with yoga practice in India; while so many of us, an estimated 300 million practitioners today, enjoy this practice mainly for self-care, generating an estimated 80 billion dollars. Now, our goal is to reach #OneMillionYogis so we can create a much bigger impact, empowering lives.
