At Yoga Alliance, cultivating community is integral to our work of supporting our membership made up of Registered Yoga Schools (RYSs) and Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs) in the high quality, safe, accessible, and equitable teaching of yoga.

These events provide Yoga Alliance membership, staff, and the broader yoga community with the valuable opportunity to connect in real-time.

Below you can find details on upcoming events, conferences, and Facebook Lives, along with information on how you can participate or get involved. We hope to see you out there!


Online Community Support Events

Together, we can continue to promote and foster the high quality, safe, accessible, and equitable teaching of yoga for all.

Yoga Alliance has planned the following in-person events. Given the ongoing evolution of the spread of COVID-19, these details are subject to change. Please revisit this page for updated information.


The Evolution of Yoga Summit

The Evolution of Yoga Summit, a collaborative project between Accessible Yoga and the Yoga Service Council, in partnership with Yoga Alliance, has been postponed due concerns related to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. This three-day event—to have been held March 20-22 through the Yoga Studies Department at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA—will be rescheduled for a yet-to-be-determined date (no earlier than June 2020).

Accessible Yoga, the Yoga Service Council, and Yoga Alliance encourage everyone to consult the World Health Organization and organizations such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the most up-to-date information and guidance on this coronavirus and its disease, COVID-19. In addition, Yoga Alliance has compiled resources to help you stay informed and help protect your community from the coronavirus.
