Announcing Our New Online CommUnity
October 22, 2020
Dear Community Member,
It is with sincere gratitude for you and this community that I write this message. In the face of all that 2020 has brought us, you have demonstrated a rare resilience and unparalleled endurance.
As yoga schools and teachers, we have seen you rally around each other. You are lifting one another up through the union of our shared practice and reminding us all that together—through the sharing of knowledge, inspiration, experience, and heart—we can weather trying times.
With this, I am thrilled to welcome you to our new, member-driven platform designed to help you further leverage your collective energy, service, and spirit.
Welcome to the YA CommUnity
The YA CommUnity is a space for you to connect with your peers in sangha and support. While the CommUnity is designed for you, it only thrives with you. You are its thought leaders—effectively, the heart and soul driving the conversations and CommUnity experience.
We invite you to join other yoga professionals from around the world to share information, resources, and experiences and form personal peer-to-peer relationships we hope will enhance your livelihoods, strengthen your network, and inspire your yoga teaching and practice.
Beyond conversations about asana and teaching, we also encourage thought-provoking discussions that are grounded in ahimsa and are geared toward creating positive changes. Through this, the CommUnity can elevate the profession of yoga with credible collaboration and shared opportunity.
Among the CommUnity’s features are:
- Welcoming spaces to ask and answer important questions about your profession and practice;
- Access to the diverse, inspiring breadth and depth of members’ shared experiences and knowledge;
- Digital event programming including Community Events, Continuing Education Workshops,
- Scientific Research on Yoga Discussions and more;
- The ability to exchange resources, share files, and post content; and
- Real-time engagement with other yoga professionals just like you.
We are humbled to have created a platform geared toward bringing individuals together to engage in deeper connections while inspiring yoga educators to think bigger and question harder about the impacts of yoga teaching. Our hope is that your conversations will help us better understand what is making a difference for you and showcase how we can better support our membership.
Yours in Service,
Senior VP, Membership
