Yoga Alliance (YA) is a 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 to yoga for populations that have traditionally been under-served, underrepresented, and marginalized in/by it. We envision a world in which our collective wellbeing and human consciousness is elevated through equitable access to high-quality teaching and practice of yoga.

 

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

 

YA and YAF (YA/F) were founded to 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 suits their needs best. We do this work so that the gifts of yoga can be offered safely and effectively to all.
