"I hope the future of service yoga is based on the ideal of 'selfless service,' and karma yoga. All of the roles we embody are opportunities for service or selfishness. This is the challenge of our age, and yogis have a history, structure, and practice to address this." - Beth Daugherty, Executive Director of the Christina Phipps Foundation

"Yoga helps get people out of their head and into their body.

"In my first year of sobriety, I started going to #yoga classes with the same raw need that I brought to Twelve Step meetings. I would often lay in Shavasana and feel tears slide down my face. My yoga instructor never approached me directly about these tears. Sometimes, she would place her palms underneath my upper back and invite my chest to relax into her hands. Then she would simply stay."
Author and yoga teacher Lilly Bechtel shares her story of healing from addiction through yoga for our "Personal Perspectives" series.

Sharing the gift of yoga with the underserved.
Introduction
Give Back Yoga Foundation believes in making yoga available to those who may 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 underserved socio-economic segments of the community, and to inspire grassroots social change and community cooperation.
