Yoga Gives Back

We are proud to pledge our official support to Yoga Gives Back, a non-profit organisation dedicated to rasing awareness and funds to support vulnerable women and children in India. Yoga Gives Back was founded by Kayoko Mitsumatsu in 2007 after she was inspired by a film she was making about microfinancing to find a way for the global yoga community to help empower people in India who lack the means to build sustainable livelihoods.

SUPPORTING PROGRESS OUT OF POVERTY

Yoga Gives Back supports programs that provide small loans to women who are otherwise excluded from the conventional banking and financial systems. By partnering with local NGOs in India, YGB has grown to assist over 1200 mothers and children with micro-loan programs and educational funds with a minimum 5-year commitment to each person.

#ONEMILLIONYOGIS

Want to get involved? Join Yoga Gives Back's cornerstone #onemillionyogis campaign, which aims to unite Yogis around the world to empower women and children in India. The goal is for one million Yogis to come together to provide economic and academic opportunities to impoverished people in the birthplace of Yoga.

COMING SOON...

We are committed to supporting racial justice in our Yoga community and beyond. We are in the process of setting up a Yoga Teacher Training Racial Diversity Scholarship Fund, and will make a starting donation of US$5,000 to this new Fund once it is set up.

GLAAD

We are very proud to support GLAAD, the leading LGBTQ media advocacy organisation. GLAAD rewrites the script for LGBTQ acceptance. As a dynamic media force, GLAAD tackles tough issues to shape the narrative and provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change. GLAAD protects all that has been accomplished and creates a world where everyone can live the life they love.

OUR CONTRIBUTION

5% of all sales of the Liforme Rainbow Hope Mat via liforme.com will be donated to support our Official Charity Partner, GLAAD, an LGBTQ organisation that works through the media to accelerate LGBTQ acceptance and create a world where everyone is able to express themselves freely.
"I want Liforme to be a leading example of how a business can be socially responsible. Our partnership with Yoga Gives Back offers us the chance to meaningfully support a wonderful organisation that is already doing amazing work to counter poverty in India. Think what we’ll be able to accomplish when one million yogis come together!"

James Armitage, CEO and Founder
