The founder of Sun Salutations is a cancer survivor that used yoga to help her mentally and physically heal from her surgeries. She also taught yoga to military service members and civilians for 2.5 years in Afghanistan. These experiences have had a profound impact on her as she has seen first-hand just how much yoga heals. She also understands the importance of community.
Sun Salutations was founded with the goal of supporting diversity in the yoga community, and from its start, has always wanted to give back. Five percent of the company’s profits will be donated to organizations that help connect yoga with diverse communities that are in particular need of the benefits of yoga. The organization that will receive these donations is Black Boys Om.
