About Us

The Yoga Care Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) research and educational organization that grew out of Yoga Yoga, five yoga centers and a wellness spa in Austin, TX. We have a three-part mission:

  • to provide access to yoga instruction for disadvantaged populations
  • to research, explore and inform about the physiological, psychological and therapeutic effects of yoga
  • and to educate the public about the traditional teachings and benefits of yoga

The Foundation was formed with the intention of enhancing yoga’s role in addressing the health and well-being of the community at large. “A growing body of scientific research studies have shown that people with a wide variety of health conditions, including back pain, sleep disorders, arthritis, and breast cancer, can benefit greatly by practicing yoga,” explains Rich Goldstein, Managing Partner at Yoga Yoga. “Our goal with the Foundation is to educate the general public about yoga’s therapeutic applications and significantly add to the existing research in a way that will support yoga being embraced as a tool for self-care and improving quality of life.”
