"The term "yoga" is a broad one, and it doesn't mean to just stand on your head. We need to get the message out that it's a mind-body practice. It can be done in bed by someone who's just had a heart or liver transplant, or had out-patient surgery. It is for all people at any time."

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.
