Education & Lifelong Studentship
Qualifications, Mentors, and Guidance
Yoga Unify recognizes that yoga isn’t a one-size-fits-all journey and that not all students who want to deepen their practice are interested in becoming a teacher. Our publicly-accessible Yoga U Catalog is an educational support system that paves a pathway to lifelong studentship for all practitioners. Our Qualification program, alongside other resources, is a support system for all yoga teachers to showcase their breadth of experience and elevate the profession.
Scholarships, Grants, and Research
By investing financially in the community in the form of scholarships and grants, we help to steward systemic change during this time of great transformation. In doing so, we support all yoga practitioners (regardless of lineage or style), innovate new ways of sharing the practice, and tend to the roots of yoga. This will not only have a lasting impact to expand the reach of yoga’s benefits but also usher in a new level of mutually-accountable support to navigate the changes affecting us all.
Yoga Unify has enlisted the support and collaboration of #NotMe to create an app to educate in the area of yogic and professional ethics. The intention is to prevent misconduct, to foster a culture of professionalism, consent, and integrity, and – as needed – to use this tool to easily and safely report ethical misconduct.
#NotMe, I won’t be an organization that sweeps misconduct under the rug

Your support and, more importantly, your participation provides all of us the opportunity to build this organization in full transparency, and with community participation. Governing Councils are in session exploring the new paradigm approach to ethics, quality, and community support that we all so need at this time. We are committed to unifying the yoga community across traditions and level of practice; creating an educational and professional structure around the study and practice of yoga; and providing resources and support to students and teachers. Get involved and join today.
