Black Yoga Teachers Alliance
On Black Friday, we donated 10% of our sales to the Black Yoga Teachers Alliance. The BYTA works to support the continuing educational and professional development of Black yoga teachers, and to elevate the presence and voices of Black yoga teachers in the world.
BYTA was founded in 2009 as a social media group to provide a space for teachers, students, practitioners, healers, and enthusiasts to discuss yoga and wellness, to share information about classes, workshops, events and activities, and most importantly, to build a network.
