What is trauma? Trauma refers to an event that overwhelms our ability to cope and respond. When we experience trauma, we feel helpless, hopeless, and out of control.

Our Commitment

Yoga Ed. is committed to equity and justice. Here’s what we’re doing to integrate this work from the inside out.

Honoring of Yoga

Yoga Ed. is actively working on incorporating ways to honor the history and culture of Yoga within our curriculum and training. We are working closely with yoga, meditation, and mindfulness teacher Anusha Wijeyakumar to do this in a way that does not supersede the first amendment.

 

Our Learning

In August 2020, our team started ABAR (Anti-Bias Anti-Racist) training with ABAR educator Britt Hawthorne. We are still in process and continue to deepen our understanding of this work and what it means in the field of education.

 

Board of Advisors

Yoga Ed. works with an advisory board to inform our content, delivery, and operations. Our advisory board has BIPOC, yoga and mindfulness, trauma-informed practices, education, and mental health representation.

 

Ownership

We have diversified our ownership through crowdraising, so the people who own Yoga Ed. represent the people we serve.

 

Diversity in Education

We are committed to BIPOC representation in the people who create and deliver our content. Our goal is for 60% of our program facilitators to be BIPOC by the end of 2022.

 

Accessibility

It is our priority to overcome obstacles to access in yoga education. We are in the process of making all our content available to the deaf and hard of hearing community. We also offer content that is free to $750, 1 minute to 6 months so that people of all means can access Yoga Ed.

 

Giving Credit

When Yoga Ed. uses content made by others on social media, we create exchange with them. We also do not leverage posts from BIPOC for profit.

 

MWBE Details

Yoga Ed. is committed to pursuing business relationships with Minority-owned and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBE) to support its core values of diversity, equity and inclusion. Yoga Ed. encourages participation and support of supplier diversity by requesting this information when searching for new suppliers who can provide high-quality services at competitive price points, and makes this information available to organizations and individuals we work with. Yoga Ed.’s MWBE objectives are overseen by leadership. All personnel purchasing for their teams are encouraged to make their procurement with a certified MWBE.

 

This kind of change takes time.

The time to start is now.
