If You’re Not A Member Of The Yoga Service Council…What Are You Waiting For?

in YD News


If you’ve never heard of the Yoga Service Council, now’s your chance to discover an invaluable organization and do something great. If you have heard of them, maybe you hadn’t heard that they’re running their first-ever membership drive to build their community and help raise funds for the wonderful work they do to make yoga programs more accessible.

Founded in 2009, today the Yoga Service Council is comprised of yoga and mindfulness teachers, therapists, social service providers, educators, and health professionals working in collaboration to make sure yoga and mindfulness programs are effective, sustainable and, maybe most importantly, accessible to all. This includes programs for kids, veterans, inmates, those who are disabled, survivors of cancer, suffering from PTSD, and the list goes on.

Right now YOU can join their cause and support their efforts by becoming a member. Individual memberships are just $25 and include a free 50-minute mentoring session with a YSC member or Advisor (ie. Jennifer Cohen Harper, Mark Lilly, Carol Horton, and more). Other levels include Organizational membership for $125 and Sustaining membership for $250, each with their benefits, perhaps the top perk being that you’re making a contribution to help keep this important organization afloat.

The good news is they’ve already reached their initial goal of 50 members in just two days. And now they’re going to 100 by the time the membership drive ends August 24th. Plenty of time to beat that goal and surpass it. Here’s where you can join and do your part: yogaservicecouncil.org/join.

Want to get even more involved? The YSC have started accepting proposals for presentations at their 6th annual Yoga Service Conference May 19-21, 2017 at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. All proposals are due by September 12.

    So…pay money to do what I am already doing for free? Sorry, I am already turned off by Yoga Alliance’s model of accepting money to have my name on a website. Yoga is becoming like the “Who’s Who in xyz” business back in the 90s, where you pay to have your name in some tome that nobody will ever read. No thanks!

  • This posts will admire many to participate in yoga program. i used to do gym but i move my self to yoga now. i feel more concatenate and energy full.
