LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yoga Gives Back (YGB) is pleased to announce its Annual Global Gala, which will be held virtually all day on Saturday, November 12, 2022. The YGB Annual Global Gala is an event like no other and provides a global, virtual community the opportunity to come together for a day of inspiration, mindfulness, and yoga to raise funds which support more than 2,400 women and children with YGB’s programs of empowerment in India.

The featured event of the YGB Annual Global Gala is the “Namaste Award Presentation” to Christy Turlington Burns, Founder and President of Every Mother Counts. Her work in maternal health began after experiencing a childbirth related complication in 2003—an experience that would later inspire her to direct and produce the documentary feature film, No Woman, No Cry, about the challenges women face throughout pregnancy and childbirth around the world. Under Christy’s leadership, Every Mother Counts has invested more than $25 million in programs in Africa, Latin America, South Asia and the United States focused on making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. As a long time yoga practitioner, Christy continues to  inspire us to make a difference in the world.

The YGB Namaste Award is a tribute to visionaries who inspire the global yoga community and beyond with their vision. In addition, these individuals have committed themselves to humanitarian causes to make this world a better place.

“We are truly proud to honor Christy Turlington Burns as the recipient of the 2022 YGB Namaste Award, for her advocacy for human rights, and especially for global maternal health,“ says Kayoko Mitsumatsu, YGB Founder and Executive Director.
