As I deepened my study of yoga, I started feeling a deep desire to help others, asking ‘how can I be useful to more people?’ with no clear answers. I went to India three years ago and met my guru, who taught me about Bhakti Yoga selfless service. I realized that was what I wanted to dedicate myself to. I am grateful for the gift of yoga, which has given me wisdom for life. I want to return this gratitude to India. I am so grateful that my husband has become Yoga Gives Back Ambassador as we experienced how we can contribute to this mission. I would like also to join and support YGB’s mission. I am so grateful that I met Kayoko, YGB Founder, who has given us precious opportunities to give back.
