YOGA FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
Rise As One is a global yoga community that connects people to projects, enabling yogis to reach the next level of practice: to be of service to others.
We collaborate with social enterprises, charities and NGOs to co-ordinate people and projects that champion diversity, gender equality and that empower women and children to live healthy, sustainable lives.
Through the extensive yoga community we can reach over 40 million people living in the USA, Asia, Australasia, the EU, Africa and the Middle East, bringing together a wide array of skills and ideas, cultures and experiences to all ‘Rise as One’ in service.
Our global yoga community includes master practitioners, specialist yoga teachers, studio owners, from the creative arts, athletes and corporate and public figures who will motivate and rally their immediate communities to join the call-out to “Rise As One”
WHAT WE DO
We provide a bridge of projects and a platform for yogis and the general community wanting to be of service. We then match their skills to social causes to help elevate their communities, and enhance impact.
Its aim is to rejuvenate the spirit of others and to provide economic empowerment.
WHY WE DO IT
We are doing this because it needs to be done. A difference can be made in someone’s life. With minimum input we can produce maximum impact – that’s why we have chosen to work in developing countries. That’s why we team with NGOs and “not for profits” who have a proven track record.
In many developing countries, if you give a small amount, it will multiply because there are dedicated people committing their lives, time and focus in these communities. In many instances it has taken a number of years of dedicated work, persistence and love to make the programs effective. With minimum input when we “Rise As One” we can produce a maximum impact.
