An inclusive community-focused directory of yoga teachers that encourages diversity and positive  relationships.

Setu aims to represent yoga teachers of all races, ethnicities, orientations, body types and geographical locations. The goal is to unite the yoga community and recognize each teacher who contributes to it.

We’ll launch our full site in late 2017. In the meantime, we’re accepting profile submissions from yoga teachers.

We recommend this for everyone.

Setu is focused on promoting diversity and creating a space for groups that often don’t receive enough recognition. The site was created after noticing how mainstream conversations around yoga often highlight the same groups and demographics. For this reason, we took another site’s lead and are supporting underrepresented groups. You do not have to state your identity but by doing so you will help us highlight diversity in the yoga community. Please feel free to use this space to share your race/ethnic identity.

Additional identification (optional)

  1. A tangible description of the classes you enjoy teaching (i.e. meditative, athletic, alignment, pranayama, etc)
  2. Why you teach & practice yoga and/or what you love about yoga
  3. Where you completed your teacher training
