Yoga Aid began in 2006 with knowledge so beautifully summed up in MC Yogi’s words: “When we live to give love, there is no greater feeling”. Two yoga enthusiasts, Clive and Eriko, set out to put their yoga practice into action by creating the Yoga Aid Challenge, an international fundraising event with the dual purpose of raising funds for charity and sharing the wonderful joys of yoga. Since the first Yoga Aid Challenge, The Yoga Aid events have raised over $1.2 Million for charities throughout the world.
As they entered 2012, Clive and Eriko decided to expand the reach of The Yoga Aid. Their plan came to fruition in the form of The Yoga Aid World Challenge: a challenge uniting yogis around the world in an effort to raise $1 million for charity. It is an ambitious goal, but one that is achievable with your help!
The real people behind Yoga Aid have always been the individuals who have made this message their own – the 10,000+ yogis who have participated in a Yoga Aid Challenge, the community ambassadors who have made these events possible in more than 250 locations around the world, the teams of volunteers who have made themselves available wherever there has been a need for them and of course, the donors who have been instrumental in raising much needed funds for charity. We call this giving philosophy “Giving4Living”.
The Yoga Aid World Challenge is seeking to raise $1 million USD for charities around the world. For those looking to participate, attendance is free. We ask that you fundraise for a chosen charity leading up to and a month after the event. By extending your muscles and amplifying your inner peace, you are helping build stronger communities that have a foundation in giving.
