Yoga is a powerful vehicle for creating a fairer and more equal world and, women and children are vital ambassadors for this change.
Yoga Gives Back is a non-profit and charity organization specifically focused on giving back to India, especially to support the serious challenges of poverty and related social issues. This is why Yogamazia is grateful to support Yoga Gives Back and serve as part of their Global Ambassadors Team. Watch the interview with our founder Michelle here; she was also recognized as one of Yoga Gives Back's Ambassadors of the Year for 2022.
We join in their mission to collectively demand positive social change to have a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world for everyone.
Yoga is a gift from India. We cannot sit back and enjoy its benefits for ourselves when India’s inequality and the sufferings of women and children are at record high compared to other parts of the world.

Thanks in advance for your support and being a part of the one million yogis helping make gender rights equal for all!
In celebration of Women's History Month in March 2022, Yogamazia ran several events to raise money for Yoga Gives Back. We loved seeing how enthusiastically our community embraced this vital cause and came out to support our efforts which allowed us to raise $4,467 - more than double our original goal! This amount can ensure 20 disadvantaged girls to continue their higher education and avoid forced marriage or trafficking.
A BIG thank you goes out to EVERYONE who took part or donated to our fundraiser and grateful to have collaborated for our fundraiser with local supporters, especially Guru's Fine Indian Cuisine and The Pro Shop of Newtown. Also see our gallery below for pictures from the fun family events. Thank you to Rang Photography for capturing the treasured moments of our Holi Celebration.
