About YWK


Yogis On Wheels began in 2002 in the South Indian state of Kerala when one of our board members, Adii Jon Platania, paid a visit to Holy Trinity School For Disabled Children. The school is part of the Molankara Orthodox Church of India and is located not far from the Sivananda Ashram where Adii was in residence in an Ayurvedic healing program related to his disabilities.

Yohanas, a priest from the orthodox ashram, introduced Adii to the school for disabled children, the elder care, and end of life hospice programs. Yohanasexplained that the kids wanted to learn yoga in order to increase their physical strength and aerobic capacity. They also were longing for computers that might help them to make their way in the world.
