Eka Recovery Fund for Yoga Professionals
The Eka Recovery Fund supports yoga professionals in returning to and/or sustaining their work and sponsors activities that facilitate economic recovery. This work sits at the intersection of economic recovery, yoga service, and community outreach.
Eka Recovery Fund initiatives focus on historically marginalized communities, which are disproportionally affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and by the bio-psycho-social impact of stress. Those experiencing marginalization also often face more barriers to yoga, which can serve as a valuable tool when navigating high levels of stress, uncertainty, and discrimination.
To support ongoing access to yoga and to provide economic recovery support to yoga professionals around the world, Yoga Alliance Foundation launched the following programs:
Teaching for Equity
Supporting yoga professionals who serve for little or no pay in bringing the benefits of yoga to communities who have experienced marginalization.
Eka Well-Being Services
Free, short-term counseling service providing one-on-one mental health care for yoga professionals and those in their families facing barriers of access to these vital services.
