Thank you!

I am so grateful for the ways in which the yoga community is waking up and stepping in. I am grateful for how we are finding our voice and engaging in a way that is conscious and compassionate. I am grateful for our courageous leaders who are willing to confront uncomfortable situations and difficult conversations. I am grateful for our commitment to being at our edge and breathing through the challenging moments. I am grateful for the way we came together in community and collaboration to amplify our impact.

And most of all…I am grateful for all of YOU. They say this campaign was won on the ground. For all of you who contributed to the conversation, stepped into leadership in your communities, supported your peers in making conscious decisions, navigated difficult conversations and stayed grounded and compassionate through it all, thank you. YOU made a difference by standing for what you believe in and inspiring others to do the same.

Thank you for believing in what is possible when we take our yoga off the mat.

Executive Director, YogaVotes
