In yoga, we are taught the concept of seva,” or service to others, which includes a dedication to the welfare of others and the desire to uplift those around us. Seva is an integral part of any yoga practice, as it is in mine. And as a yoga therapist, in addition to being of service to others, I work with people to help them understand their needs and implement ways to address those needs. Yoga Gives Back beautifully integrates these objectives, which is why I chose to be a part of it. When I first heard of Yoga Gives Back and its mission to create a community of yoga teachers who are brought together in this spirit of seva to support women and girls in cultures that are not particularly welcoming of female growth and development, it seemed like exactly the kind of service I wanted to be a part of. I have experienced much kindness and generosity in my life and look forward to the many ways I might be able to share the same through this organization.
