Launching THE PAD PROJECT at NISHTHA!We’re excited to announce our partnership with The Pad Project to start a truly revolutionary program this month at our NGO Partner NISHTHA, West Bengal.

Happy International Women’s Day!  

When we come together, magic happens. Our 2nd annual “Women-In-Yoga Empowerment Conference” just celebrated Int’l Women’s Day. It was a profoundly inspiring gathering with diverse global leaders sharing honest and thought provoking dialogue as well as practical sessions to empower each other as mothers, panelists and sisters!  Did you miss it? No worries, the replay of all sessions is here.

In our 15th year, we have big dreams to achieve:

  • Create a “Digital Center” for girls and women in rural villages. 
  • Expand the Pad Project. Grow our SHE Scholarship to help India’s 10 million girls from dropping secondary education due to the Pandemic

Join us to empower many more underserved girls and women in India!
