Give Back Yoga University is your opportunity to connect directly with yoga nonprofits, researchers, and world-renowned teachers on the greatest questions facing our industry. The faculty include experts from nonprofit organizations, public sector institutions, and academia. 

But what makes Give Back Yoga University remarkable is that it’s also a platform to raise funds for not-for-profit yoga projects, which need our support now more than ever. Every dollar we raise through the platform will go directly to help bring yoga to people in prisons, hospitals, and community care centers.

As a nonprofit organization, the Give Back Yoga Foundation has been working to bring yoga to people facing illness and hardship for the past thirteen years. They offer yoga mats, small grants, and continuing education to teachers leading not-for-profit yoga projects. They also have five Legacy Programs that serve people facing addiction, cancer, eating disorders, incarceration, and post-traumatic stress (respectively). 

I’m honored to be presenting alongside renowned teachers such as Beryl Bender Birch, Sat Bir Khalsa, Elena Brower, and Amy Wheeler.
I hope you’ll join me for ‘Enlightened Sleep: The Power of Yoga Nidra’ on December 17th at 11AM MST. You can register directly for my offering here: or, Give Back Yoga is offering my students a discounted pass, which provides access to all talks, workshops, and classes on the platform for $29/month — get yours here. All the funds we raise on the platform support not-for-profit yoga projects in prisons, hospitals, and community care centers. Learn more about their work here.

In my presentation, you will learn:

  • All about the practice of Yoga Nidra: including what it is and how it works
  • How Yoga Nidra can help clients facing illness and hardship find freedom and lasting peace.
  • Both practical and spiritual applications of Yoga Nidra.
  • Ways to introduce this powerful practice into your life and work.
