Participation Guidelines

The purpose of YIS is to provide our community with access to yoga and other self-care tools. We do not, and will not, compete with yoga studios. This involves teaching yoga, assisting yoga classes, supporting teachers and assistants with before and after class activities, webpage support, fundraisers, etc.

There are many ways to help!

If you are interested in teaching, assisting, or volunteering in another capacity, please complete the Teacher / Volunteer Application application and the YIS Participant Waiver and submit it to


  • We strongly encourage those who are teaching yoga to be in a teacher training program, on the path to teaching yoga, or, best, a certified yoga teacher.
  • We strongly encourage those who are teaching or assisting yoga to have liability insurance. See Yoga Journal for an affordable insurance.
