We are building a community not as an end in itself, but to create a forum of communication where the yoga community can network, share ideas and establish important professional relationships that will provide lifelong intellectual and emotional sustenance.
We’re looking for yoga teachers, studio owners, school directors, and other yoga enthusiasts to become a part of this movement to collaborate and create meaningful change in the yoga community. The Local Community Initiative (LCI) aims to create a safe space for communication and networking, identify and support local leaders, and start a grassroots network that will become a united voice for the yoga community for any future regulatory issues.
Yoga Allliance selectively partners with companies across the nation to provide our community with supportive programs. We strive to create services that help our yoga community find a little more balance or sattva in their work and in their daily lives as yoga teachers, schools, studios and human beings.
Yoga Alliance's mission is “to spread the power of yoga, one person at a time.” With help from our endorsed business partner, prAna, we've found another good way to do that: The "Gift of Yoga" scholarship. Two scholarships, underwritten by prAna, will be awarded in the amount of $2,225 each to help subsidize teacher-training program tuition for members who are currently a RYT 200 and desire to upgrade to RYT 500. To qualify, applicants must demonstrate financial need, longevity as a member of Yoga Alliance, and experience and commitment to teaching yoga to underserved communities.
