GOYA Uplifting Yoga Collectively: Bridging Teachers, Schools & Practitioners
GOYA cultivates & upholds inclusive, accessible, safe, qualified, equitable standards in yoga education.
GOYA, emerged from a palpable void that we, as yoga educators, recognized in the contemporary yoga landscape. In a landscape dominated by the monopoly, we saw the pressing need for a fresh, dynamic entity.
This wasn’t about introducing just another name into the mix; it was about creating an organization deeply rooted in genuine inclusivity and adaptability. Where others have maintained a one-size-fits-all approach, we envisioned a space that celebrated diverse voices, methodologies, and traditions.
The traditional paradigms of yoga education and standards often seemed rigid, not evolving with the times or the diverse needs of practitioners. The onset of the pandemic underscored this urgency, leaving teachers and schools grappling to adjust in unprecedented times. Together, we are forging a new narrative.
