India Needs Our Help

We owe everything to India. Our brothers and sisters need our help. We cannot immerse ourselves in the powerful practice of yoga, yet turn a blind eye to what’s happening in India right now.

India has maintained a deep impact on the world for thousands of years. The word ‘yoga’ comes from the Sanskrit term ‘yuj’ which means to unite-and today we should come together to give a helping hand to India who is experiencing the world’s worst COVID outbreak.

We are much stronger together, and they need our collective help. Hospitals have run out of basic medical supplies, and many are dying due to oxygen shortages and in record numbers.
