Donate to the YTT on the Navaho reservation in Arizona

Donate to bring the healing benefits of yoga to Native Americans, by training people who work in those communities to be certified yoga teachers.

Help us create more diversity in yoga.

Be a part of Yoga Impact’s karmic outreach.

Yoga’s healing benefits have been documented over thousands of years, and are now proven by scientific research. This is truly the best time ever to be in yoga. This ancient form of healing is now joining hands with conventional Western medicine, and bringing its ability to strengthen and heal into more diverse communities. This campaign creates an opportunity to bring yoga’s impact to The Diné (The People) on the Navajo Reservation, and other indigenous peoples in Arizona.

The challenge is that people who live on the reservation – and those who work with and serve them – have limited incomes. Let’s help them serve!



20 trainees

100% are involved in social justice issues related to the indigenous people who live in Arizona

Represent 3 different reservations

90% work with youth on the reservations

7 are Diné (The People) of the Navaho Reservation

50% will be traveling 2.5-5 hours to come to the training every month

The creator of the program, Nancy Candea, is a 500-hour yoga teacher trainer and the founder of Yoga Impact, a 501(c)(3). For more information on Nancy and her work, see below.



The training will culminate in a 200-hour YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) certificate recognized by the Yoga Alliance. We are offering this training as partial work-study, asking the participants to serve/teach yoga to enrich the health and wellness in their communities, in exchange for a reduced fee. Participants are also welcome to take the training without a work-study commitment, at full cost.


Why donate?

Your tax-deductible donation will provide for these needs:


yoga props



teacher and mentor travel stipends

space rental (provided on the Navajo Reservation at a reduced fee)



The Yoga Teacher Training will begin the first weekend in October 2017, then meet one weekend a month (October through May).
