Practice Yoga and Raise Funds for Smile Train

In celebration of the United Nations International Day of Yoga, we invite you to practice yoga with people from around the world to raise funds for Smile Train’s programs.



Strike a Pose. Raise a Smile.

Smile Train’s sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ countries around the world to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities. We are working with yoga teachers, studios, and community supporters to create Yoga For Smiles fundraisers all around the world, bringing smiles to children with untreated clefts.
