Get Involved

We are creating and facilitating 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.

Our community is both virtual and face-to-face and has local, national, and international components. Here are some ways members like you can get involved in the Yoga Alliance community:

 Yoga Alliance Foundation


The Yoga Alliance Foundation supports and promotes education and research by securing grants and donations through charitable and educational activities such as scholarships. It also fosters, promotes and disseminates yoga research with an emphasis on training and education. Learn more about the Foundation.

 advocacy - scales of justice


We're committed to protecting and supporting the yoga community's freedom to teach and practice yoga. Read about our current and past advocacy work, learn about the status of yoga regulation in your state, and find out what you can do to advocate in your community. Get involved in our advocacy efforts.

 Partner with Yoga Alliance


Yoga Alliance selectively partners with socially-conscious companies to provide our community with supportive programs. We strive to create services that help our yoga community find a little more sattva in their work and in their daily lives as yoga teachers, schools, studio owners, and human beings. Partner with us.

 Calendar of events


Cultivating community is an integral part of our work to support teachers and schools. We sponsor and participate in many outreach events where you can also meet Yoga Alliance's leadership and staff. Come and see us!

 social credentialing

Social Credentialing

Yoga Alliance offers Social Credentialing for its schools and continuing education providers. Registered Yoga Teachers provide feedback to schools and continuing education providers by completing reviews of their training. This feedback helps RYS and YACEP members continually improve their programs and courses. Learn more about social credentialing.
