Give Back Yoga –

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. The Give Back Yoga Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
