Event description

Description

The various yoga communities around the globe are incredibly expansive in their philosophies, practices, methods and cares. At Yoga Alliance, we believe we are better for that diversity, especially when we come together in yoga to channel our collective energy together for the greater good.

In order to better understand the perspectives of different yoga communities, this summer, our President & CEO David Lipsius and COO Shannon Roche are embarking on a journey across the U.S. to personally share with you the ways in which the organization is changing to better serve the yoga community and to request your guidance and feedback.

The discussion with David Lipsius will include details on the Yoga Alliance Standards Review Project, a comprehensive and inclusive review to ensure that our standards are appropriately evolving over time. As a member organization, Yoga Alliance is most known for its standards and credentials. Because the Yoga Alliance credential is immediately recognizable by most yoga practitioners, it is vitally important that teachers and practitioners understand what our standards mean.

By developing standards and offering credentials to those who meet the conditions of the standards, Yoga Alliance:
  • Provides teachers and schools a measure for quality, safety and performance that they can claim in order to get jobs or promote themselves to the public;
  • Assures quality, safety and performance for customers/students of teachers and schools;
  • Allows those most knowledgeable on the subject matter to shape the field;
  • Discourages government agencies from standardizing all of yoga into narrow definitions;
  • Improves competence and effectiveness of its members.


At Yoga Alliance, we know that personal connections and respectful, peaceful and conscious communication are keys to successful relationships so we look forward to meeting you and opening a dialogue that we hope will continue for years to come.
