Celebrate Independence!

IYEA TranspLogo_000Happy Independence Day! In addition to our country’s anniversary of independence, today we are celebrating the launch of the Independent Yoga Educators of America!

I encourage ALL yoga teachers, practitioners, and supporters to visit the IYEA website. Launched by Leslie Kaminoff, the IYEA advocates these principles:

  • I am an independent yoga educator.
  • I teach about the value of personal freedom on all levels of human experience.
  • I embrace my own standards for my education, and the training of my students, and am willing to be held accountable for living up to those standards.
  • I value my freedom to conduct my relationships without coercive interference by third parties.
  • I will resist to the best of my ability any entity that assumes the authority to license or regulate me as a yoga educator or to enforce its standards upon me.

I highly encourage all yoga teachers, practitioners, and supporters to visit the IYEA website and blog and consider donating a minimum of $10 to support writing, networking, organizing and legal fees to protect our freedom to teach yoga.

This is an exciting time in yoga’s evolution – I hope you’ll be a part of it.

    Love the way you present important Yoga information generally, but am incredibly thankful for this post – I’ve been unimpressed thus far with the Yoga Alliance but still want to unite with brother and sister teachers – I think the IYEA maybe just the ticket! Keep up the excellent work!

    Yoga Alliance has been so disappointing. I really believe Leslie Kaminoff has started something great with IYEA 🙂
