I can always remember that first time I realized, through the teachings of yoga, how beautiful life is. My inner light was ignited back then and I will be forever grateful to the creators of the yoga system. I believe we all need someone or something to give us a hand up in life, a spark of hope, wherever we find ourselves.
When I came across Yoga Gives Back, the team shared videos of each individual women, all different, with their own story and challenges, which most of us can’t even imagine. I saw the positive changes and light in the women’s faces. It was instantly heart felt and I was inspired to help. I felt the sincerity and genuine care from the team and supporters of Yoga Gives Back and I’m honored and grateful to of found a charity with a mission to lift and support women sustainably. As Kofi Annan says “When women thrive all of society benefits.”
