For the global yoga community, Yoga Alliance (YA) is the independent a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit member organization that advances the development and livelihood of yoga professionals and advocates for safety and accessibility in yoga. YA’s mission is to educate and support yoga teachers, schools and students to effectively share the arts and sciences of yoga with their communities. Yoga Alliance Foundation (YAF), a related 501(c)(3) public charity, develops vehicles for social impact and has a goal to bring yoga’s healing potential to populations that have historically been marginalized from it and create new service opportunities for YA members.
Yoga Alliance Foundation’s Managing Director (M.D.) will translate the organization’s vision into a portfolio of programs that amplifies opportunities for yoga to transform and heal. This is an outstanding opportunity for a leader to build a program portfolio by: identifying promising community programs; developing grantmaking approaches that support program expansion and scale; measuring outcomes; and incorporating learning into future initiatives. Humble, collaborative, and disciplined, the M.D. must bring a track record building partnerships that have led to equity and access in marginalized communities.
