who are Yoga Gives Back?

We are proud to pledge our official support to Yoga Gives Back, a non-profit organisation dedicated to raising awareness and funds to support vulnerable women and children in India. Yoga Gives Back was founded by Kayoko Mitsumatsu in 2006 to find a way for the global Yoga community to help empower people in India who lack the means to build sustainable livelihoods after being inspired by a film she was making about microfinancing. Their mantra of “For the cost of one yoga class, you can change a life,” has been carried forward by dedicated supporters across the globe in over 30 countries.

By partnering with local NGOs in India, Yoga Gives Back has grown to assist over 2,400 mothers and children with micro-loan programs and educational funds with a minimum 5-year commitment to each person. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Yoga Gives Back has expanded their support network to include projects that provide women and children access to the Internet and basic computer education, as well as to sanitary pad making machines which provide women and girls with much-needed affordable and biodegradable high quality menstrual products whilst also creating a source of income for women in Yoga Give Back’s micro-loan groups.

Through our official partnership with Yoga Gives Back, we are committed to helping them raise significant funding for their life-changing projects. And we are also providing resources and support to help them spread their global reach and advance their goal of raising awareness and funds to alleviate poverty in India.
