The YTA’s vision is to create a community that taps into the power of yoga to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately the world.
To implement this vision, we:
create programming that cultivates curiosity and expertise in many different traditions, modalities, and styles of Hatha yoga and related practices.
foster an inclusive atmosphere that promotes diversity among presenters, teachers, participants, and students within the YTA and beyond.
provide experiences that enhance and inspire individuals' yoga practices and/or their teaching.
Our core values include:
Service: We enthusiastically volunteer our time, talent, and effort in order to provide top-quality instruction that stimulates interest in the philosophy of yoga and its practices.
Learning: We embrace the concept of the beginner’s mind and encourage eternal curiosity on the path of personal development.
Community: We acknowledge and celebrate our connections to one another on this shared journey.
Mindfulness: We act with an awareness of and compassion for each individual’s personal journey, past, present, and future.
Inclusiveness: We welcome all within the YTA and hope to be a catalyst for tolerance and acceptance in the world of yoga and beyond.
