What does the Yoga Health Foundation Do?
Provides Online Resources
The Yoga Health Foundation website features a searchable yoga finder and event directory for visitors to locate yoga teachers, studios and events near them. It is free for teachers and event coordinators to list their studios and events. Information on yoga and its proven health benefits is also posted to educate those new to yoga.
Coordinates National Yoga Month September
September is the official National Yoga Month, a national observance designated by the Department of Health and Human Services. This month-long celebration of yoga encourages teachers to offer free community yoga events and classes. Individuals new to yoga can try a free week of yoga classes at studios across the country by printing a One Week Free Yoga card from the website.
The entire yoga community comes together for the Time for Yoga, a global community yoga practice. As the culmination of Yoga Month, every year on September 30, individuals across the globe are invited to practice yoga at 7pm as a part of a “wave” of yoga around the world.
Coordinates Yoga Recess-in-Schools
Yoga Recess is a national campaign that brings yoga-based health and fitness education into the classroom. By offering free online resources and awarding grants to school teachers, Yoga Recess fosters health, happiness, creativity, compassion and integrity in students.
