Gaiam was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1988 by Jirka Rysavy. Rysavy's ultimate vision was to serve the "conscious consumer", a group of educated consumers who make purchasing decisions based on their values.
As a dedicated to providing solutions for healthy and eco-conscious living, Gaiam recently announced a 3-year partnership with the Give Back Yoga Foundation, a non profit organization that believes in making yoga available to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to cultivate a regular practice- including veterans with PTSD and at-risk youth. They aim to support and offer teaching of yoga to the underprivileged communities and has inspired social change throughout the years.
With this partnership, Gaiam is making a special donation to the Give Back Yoga Foundation's "Light the Way for Heroes", a campaign that is designed to help fund and provide the right yoga toolkit to the veterans in need so they can practice and use yoga as a means of coping with their life after war which will help strengthen connections with loved ones and improve quality of life.
Want to know how you can help? Customers can support the cause by contributing $2 to Light the Way for Heroes with every purchase on Gaiam.com online shop. All donations through Gaiam.com will help provide veterans the therapeutic yoga tool kits that includes practice guides, Gaiam yoga mats, and meditation audio.
