The Collective Yoga Co-op Fund

The Collective Yoga Coop  is a group of teachers who believe that the yoga world needs to change. No investment groups. No equity firms. No corporate backing. This is a yoga studio for the people, by the people.

In establishing as a workers cooperative, we commit to supporting the community by hosting accessible pop-up yoga classes throughout Chicago (when COVID safety restrictions allow), in partnership with local charities. You can also expect a regular weekly schedule  of virtual classes from us, so you can flow from your home in Chicago and beyond. Lastly, we believe diversity is important. That is why we are centering LGBTQ+ voices and voices of color in our teachers and in our community.

Any amount is appreciated! All funds raised will be used to open a physical brick and mortar location when it's safe to do so -- our goal is 3rd/4th quarter 2021, pending safety guidelines of the pandemic. Thanks for your contribution! We hope to change the yoga world with you.
