At Give Back Yoga, our mission is to bring the transformational benefits of yoga to people with limited access to this practice. We help yoga teachers, health workers, and charitable organizations offer yoga to those in need - including veterans, prisoners, and individuals facing mental and physical illness. We also work with community partners to increase access to yoga for populations that face systemic bias and prejudice.
