India’s Covid-19 Crisis requires a collective effort.

India, home to many of yoga’s deepest wisdom-drenched roots, is suffering as a second wave of COVID-19 sweeps the country. COVID-19 is spreading at rapid rates through India with case numbers reaching higher than 300,000 per day. They have run out of oxygen, ventilators, PPE, and hospitals are beyond capacity.

As a community of teachers and practitioners of yoga—a practice so deeply steeped in India’s vibrant culture—we are called to act. If you’ve ever benefited from the practice of yoga, now is the time to give back, is the resounding cry heard across the community. Your donations will go to relief organizations who are helping during this crisis.

Sunday, May 23, 6-7:30pm

All donations will be split between two non-profits chosen by the teachers:

AID India

Association for India’s Development is a volunteer movement promoting sustainable, equitable and just development. AID supports grassroots organizations in India and initiates efforts in various interconnected spheres such as education, livelihoods, natural resources including land, water and energy, agriculture, health, women’s empowerment and social justice.


GiveIndia is India’s largest & most trusted donation platform, with 1.5M+ donors & 150+ corporate partners supporting 2,000+ NGOs, impacting 10M lives. Their vision is to alleviate poverty by enabling the world to give. GiveIndia was born out of the belief that equal opportunity is the cornerstone of civilization. All human beings must have the same opportunity to succeed in life, irrespective of the circumstances they were born into.

The consequences of poverty are manifold and it impacts families through generations. An intervention at the right time, like educating one generation or providing livelihood to increase income can help families break the cycle of generational poverty. GiveIndia aspires to change inequality by bringing together the people who want to give and the organizations that work to make a difference.
