"Yoga helps get people out of their head and into their body. This alone can greatly assist in quieting the mind, potentially providing a respite from the daily barrage of stimuli we all face in the modern world." - Michael Joseph Ferguson, author of The Drummer & The Great Mountain: a Guidebook to Transforming Adult ADD/ADHD

Stop by the Give Back Yoga blog to read more about why we need a multidimensional perception of adult ADD/ADHD, and how #yoga  can help individuals of this neurological type to create a successful and fulfilling life.
GBYF Executive Director Rob Schware talks to author Michael Joseph Ferguson about the links between ADD/ADHD, creativity and addiction -- and how yoga can help.

"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
