We Are Your Sisters was created by the Viveka Foundation (a non-profit organization, pending charitable status) to support organizations globally that need financial aid to fight trafficking and rape. Beginning with the South Asian community, we aim to demonstrate that even third and fourth generation diaspora communities feel an affinity to their cultural heritage and continue to give back to those nations. We as sisters of South Asian descent in North America aim to take this model to other diaspora communities where the same crisis of trafficking and rape exists. We wish to create a global sisterhood where funds go towards eradicating this global issue. To learn about how to get your community's program started please , contact us.
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. If you wish to contribute your time at one of our events click on the following link: become a member.
What is a “Yogathon”
Schedule of Events
How to Register
Similar to a marathon where people run 26 miles, a Yogathon is a physical challenge, where those who register will be asked to complete 108 sun salutations.
At the WAYS Yogathon, if you are not an advanced yogi, you can partner-up and split the 108 challenge!
So what is a sun salutation you ask? Well to put it simply, it is a series of 12 yoga postures. To learn how to do one and practice before the challenge please watch the youtube video. (See below)
