Member-Wide Ethical Commitment

The Yoga Alliance Ethical Commitment came in response to membership asking for greater clarity on how to best welcome all who wish to practice yoga. Its three-pronged approach asks members to review and understand all Yoga Alliance policies and abide by an updated Code of Conduct, a new Scope of Practice, and a shared awareness of and responsibility to equity in yoga.

Emergency Relief

The Yoga Alliance Foundation launched an Emergency Fund to support those throughout the yoga community hardest hit by COVID-19. On June 30, 2020, the Fund closed to new applications, and the Foundation is now currently planning for a second phase of assistance, which will focus on the intersection of economic recovery and yoga service.
