Whether you practice online or in person, you’re surrounded by community. Here are some of the ways our members experience–and appreciate–the support of others.

I have had the rich, rich experience of some of the most amazingyoga teachers. Thank you, to all of you. I have learned from you. You know how I know? As a teacher, I am receiving feedback from students about new self-discoveries. So, sograteful.

—Sandy Weatherall Nanaimo | British Columbia, Canada

I love my yoga community! My friends and I started a club on our college campus, and it has been so much fun meeting new people and making yoga more accessible to students. It’s beginner-friendly and open to everyone, and we cannot wait to keep learning and growing with each other.

—Maria Caprio | Nashville, TN

I came to yoga later in life. I was asked if I would lead a weekly class to the senior community, which I gladly accepted. This amazing group of seniors, many of whom have never practiced yoga, are now making yoga a regular part of their lives. They learn not only asana but breath and meditation practices which help them enrich their daily lives between classes.

—Dave Emery | Winters, CA

What I love about my yoga community is my students. As a newly minted yoga teacher, I rely on them to remain accepting and open to the learning, whether they’re beginning hot yoga or practicing Yin.

—Maria Garriga | Covington, KY

I love my fellow yoga teacher training peeps! We started the training as strangers; four months later, we were family. We practice together and take each others’ classes regularly! They truly are some of the kindest, most talented yogis I know. 

—Kim MacPherson | Milton, GA

I’m a teacher/owner at a rural Kentucky studio, and the people are the best part! With such varied students in a class, we work through most variations of postures. This keeps me on my toes making sure all of our classes are inclusive for anyone who wants to come through the doors.
