Yoga Alliance (YA) is the global, independent member organization that advances the development and livelihood of yoga professionals and advocates for safety and accessibility in yoga.  A related public charity, the Yoga Alliance Foundation (YAF), is an emerging field leader in yoga-based social impact dedicated to increasing access amongst populations that have traditionally been under-represented in yoga.

Together, these two organizations support yoga teachers to more fully grow into their role as leaders within their communities.  YA supports yoga teachers’ growth as professionals.  YAF develops vehicles for direct social impact, such as programs that enable professional teachers to serve within communities that have typically been excluded from yoga.

YA and YAF promote unity in yoga – so that all lineages, traditions and yoga organizations may thrive and all students may benefit from the gifts of yoga in the way that best suits their needs.  YA and YAF do this work so that the gifts of yoga can be offered safely and effectively to all.
