What Our Students Are Saying

Wonderful and rich experience

“I'd recommend the Accessible Yoga Training to a friend because it is a wonderful and rich experience, thanks to the organizers and the speakers. Each day, the Training helps us to connect to the true essence of Yoga and of our being. I've found so many tools to teach Yoga to so different populations. This Training is so important to help everybody to have access to Yoga.”

-Gabrielle Auffret, Accessible Yoga Training Online Participant

Gave me relief and more ease

“My biggest takeaway / a-ha! moment in the Accessible Yoga Training was the moment I realized that we all are temporarily abled bodied. After watching one of the first video's here on the website I realized that this gave me relief and more ease. And it was so good to be around people with the same intentions. This has an enormous effect on how we learn and can stay open to what is presented.”

-Astrid, Accessible Yoga Training Online Participant

About Accessible Yoga School

Accessible Yoga School was founded in the summer of 2020 by Jivana Heyman and Amber Karnes. This online school will:

  • Address gatekeeping in yoga by platforming the voices of underestimated and marginalized teachers
  • Address issues of white supremacy in yoga in all of its manifestations: racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, cultural appropriation, and more
  • Provide quality education around equity issues in yoga, including practical tools from trustworthy sources to inform your teaching practice
  • Offer this education in an even more accessible format: 100% online

The Accessible Yoga School will bring you in-depth courses, mentorship programs, study groups, book clubs, and more, led by yoga educators from communities who embody and share the values of interconnectedness and liberation that are the heart of yoga’s teachings.
