Type: Full Time
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 grow into their role more fully 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.
We are currently seeking a Communications Manager to join our team.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Working with key leaders on the Marketing & Communications team, you will support YA/F in growing its brand while amplifying Yoga Alliance’s unique position in expanding yoga’s reach in communities across the globe, while supporting and bolstering the growing profession of yoga as a thought leader, resource, and aggregator in the broader yoga community.
As the Communications Manager, you should be an exceptional communicator with superior writing and project management skills. You’ll be responsible for creating, implementing, and overseeing communications programs, be it internal or external, that effectively support storytelling efforts and propel the brand’s image. You’ll report directly to the Director of Marketing and Communications and will have one direct report (Public Relations Coordinator). You will also work closely with any external agency partners to support the organization’s work including, but not limited to Forum One, Soze, and other consultants.
