Accessible Yoga Update By Jivana Heyman

Accessible Yoga is growing and expanding – so much has already happened this year. We collaborated with Yoga International on our first Accessible Yoga Online Conference. You can watch a preview here. I’m thrilled that the Conference is being offered in this manner because it is truly accessible to those who can’t join us in person!

We are just a month away from our Accessible Yoga Conference NYC. This is our first conference on the East Coast, and its bigger than our previous conferences – with 25 presenters and 300 attendees. We’ll have so many of my favorite yoga teachers there: Matthew Sanford, Nischala Joy Devi, Cheri Clampett, Dianne Bondy, Steffany Moonaz, Marsha Danzig, JoAnn Lyons, and so many more. This is a wonderful opportunity to get inspired and feel connected.

Our Accessible Yoga Regional Teams are blossoming everywhere! We now have Facebook Groups in multiple languages to help share Accessible Yoga around the world. Check out our current groups:

Accessible Yoga Italian

Accessible Yoga Dutch

Accessible Yoga Greek

Accessible Yoga Spanish

Accessible Yoga Swedish

Portuguese, French and German coming soon!

We’re really excited about our collaboration with the Yoga and Body Image Coalition. They produced an inspiring video at our last Conference as part of their Representation Matters campaign. Check it out here.

We are offering ten Accessible Yoga Trainings around the world this year, including programs in Greece, Italy, Portugal, California, and upcoming trainings in Virginia, New York, France, Austria, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and St. Louis.

We also have a thriving Accessible Yoga Ambassador program, which includes over 200 Ambassadors around the world, who are sharing yoga with all! To become an Ambassador, you simple connect with us by completing this application form.

Our online Network is growing and expanding. You can have a free listing in this online directory, which we designed to help connect students to the right yoga teacher. There are many way for you to connect with our growing community. Please reach out to us at and tell us how you’d like to get involved.
