Yoga Gives Back - Creating Opportunities for New Lives in India

Meet the Yoga Gives Back Founder, Kayoko Mitsumatsu:
“In 2006, as I began to learn yoga asana and philosophy, it hit me very hard that I needed to use all my capacity to help others, especially the underserved women and children in India, the motherland of YOGA. I was benefitting so much from the daily practice of Yoga I had to give back. I shared this idea with my yoga teacher and the studio manager, who all supported the idea. That’s how Yoga Gives Back was born, with our mantra — For the cost of one yoga class, you can change a life.“

Previously, Kayoko was a producer/director for documentary programs at NHK (Japan’s National Public TV) since 1984 and Cultural Attache at the Embassy of Japan in London.

In the last fifteen years, Yoga Gives Back has spread globally, with 150 Ambassadors who are yoga teachers sharing YGB’s mission with their communities, as well as raising funds with their events. They have also created a community of dedicated volunteers and partnering sponsors whose annual contribution tremendously helps their mission.
