We are yoga teachers and practitioners with a vision
of bridging the yoga community in the U.S. with people who need help in India, the birthplace of yoga. Nearly forty percent of the world's poor live in India. Out of a population of 1.1 billion over one fourth earn less than a dollar day. We recognize that our lives have been forever changed by the wisdom we have taken from yoga and we feel a need to give back.

Compassion is a uniquely human quality
that calls on our highest nature to respond to another person, or even the earth itself if it is in need. This is truly the highest yoga we can undertake, a tangible expression of the unity that underlies all life.

In order to realize this goal
we have teamed up with one of the world's premiere microfinance networks, the Grameen Foundation. The Foundation has several partners in India which have already helped thousands of people. As of December 2007, Grameen Foundation reaches 4 million clients across more than 20 countries. In total, the network impacts an estimated 20 million lives in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and the Middle East.


Yogis, join us in this revolutionary campaign
to help India's poor.
