 Join the Force of OneMilionYogis

In 2021, while many of us are blessed to have yoga practice that sustains us at this difficult time, our fund recipient women and children in India face enormous challenges for their lives due to Covid-19 Second Surge Crisis and the devastation caused by catastrophic Cyclone Amphan in West Bengal last May.
Now more than ever,
we are called to take action. 
Worldwide, an estimated 300 million practicing yogis drive an 80-billion dollar industry. If a fraction of this can be redirected to empower the underserved women and children in India, we can effect a real change, especially at this challenging time.

Here are easy ways to get involved.
