YOGA GIVES BACK UNITES GLOBAL YOGA COMMUNITY
TO SAY “THANK YOU MOTHER INDIA”
FUNDRAISER ON SEPTEMBER 17, 2011
Unprecedented Global Yoga Event to Give Back to India,
the Birthplace of Yoga
Please join us for a full day of yoga classes where all donations will to the Yoga Gives Back organization who helps support impoverished women and children in India.
Yoga Gives Back (YGB) is a grassroots organization set up to raise funds through donation yoga classes to support impoverished women and children in India, with an expanding team of volunteers and supporters across the US and the world. Yoga is a gift from ancient India, embraced by the West. But 76% of India’s population lives below the poverty line, while $ 6 billion is spent on yoga in the U.S. alone each year.
The Day’s Teaching Schedule is as follows:
9:00 - 10:30 Maura Nolan
10:30 - 12:00 Heather Hughes
12:15 - 1:45 John Son
2:00 - 3:30 Shanna Honkomp
3:30 – 5:00 Marina Garde
“Thank You Mother India” started as a local fundraiser for Yoga Gives Back organized by YGB Ambassador Jorgen Christiansson of Omkar108 Yoga in Los Angeles alongside MahaMondo.com, in October 2010. For its second year, YGB is expanding the event into a fundraiser with global presence. Joining to support this event are YGB Ambassadors Kino Macgregor, Sophie Herbert, and Eddie Stern of Ashtanga Yoga New York. As of today, nearly 50 yoga studios from 10 countries, many across the US as well as in the UK, Hong Kong, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Netherlands, Sweden, Japan and Australia, are planning to host special events on this day.
