Aparna Sherman's 4th Annual Yoga Gives Back fundraiser September 30th

Aparna Sherman's 4th Annual Yoga Gives Back fundraiser September 30th, 6-8pm.


Of the many hundred organizations I could have been an Ambassador for, why did I choose YGB?

"YGB touched my heart so deeply in that the founder is a humble person dedicated to service. Th money is given out as loans, not handouts. Loans are empowering to these women as they build their small businesses. This organization is structured like Muhammad Yunus' Grameen Bank."  ~ Aparna Sherman

This year, there are two special guests - Kayoko Mitsumatsu, founder of Yoga Gives Back and Jivana Heyman, co-owner of the Santa Barbara Yoga Center and Director of the San Francisco Integral Yoga Center.

Come for a delightful evening of great food, wine, classical Indian dance performance and silent auction. 100% of the proceeds from this event goes straight to YGB. If you cannot attend and wish to donate, please make a check out to Yoga Gives Back and mail it to:

Jivana Heyman will guide you in a beautiful guided meditation.

Daniela Riva, classical dancer and yoga teacher, will lead participants in a short but beautiful mudras and shloka (Sanskrit chant).

At 7:45pm there will be a classical dance recital by Daniela Riva and Aparna Sherman. You will truly get a glimpse into the rigor and training that goes into being a classical dancer but also the sweet devotional aspect of dance for the Divine. They hope to enchant you and open your hearts with dances about Krishna and the Devi.

Kayoko Mitsumatsu will speak briefly about YGB and her annual trips to India. Following that, delicious Indian appetizers, wine and a chance to bid on beautiful items from local artists and the Chopra Center, who donate generously to the event each year.
