I am a certified 200hr teacher with the Authentic Flow Tribe founded by Satu Tuomela.
Soon a member of Yoga Alliance I follow their Ethical Commitment which consists of three elements:
a Code of Conduct
“Yoga Alliance™ and the Yoga Alliance Foundation™ envision a world in which access to high quality teaching and practicing of yoga is equitable for all and elevates collective wellbeing and human consciousness. The purpose of the Code and the overall Ethical Commitment is to foster safe and respectful guidelines for the profession of teaching yoga and to assure that Yoga Alliance members maintain a high level of teaching ability and accountability.”

a Scope of Practice
“Yoga Alliance™ and the Yoga Alliance Foundation™ envision a world in which access to high quality teaching and practicing of yoga is equitable for all and elevates collective wellbeing and human consciousness. The purpose of the SOP and the overall Ethical Commitment is to foster safe and respectful guidelines for the Business of yoga and to assure that Yoga Alliance members maintain a high level of teaching ability and accountability.”
Extracted from the Scope of Practice.
a responsibility to Equity in Yoga.
Why Equity? In the spirit of satya, we recognize the inequities in the systems that surround yoga and through which yoga is practiced. In the spirit of ahimsa, we acknowledge that these inequities have led to the exclusion and harm of many communities. Equity creates space for a fair distribution of resources, support, and opportunities amongst diverse populations and communities, allowing for the opportunity to teach, practice, and study yoga safely, without harm or judgment. By focusing on equity, we are able to center our work around facilitating change in the areas of diversity, accessibility, and inclusivity. This emphasis on equity aligns our hopes for everyone to have access to resources and support as well as recognizes that there will be distinct work required to ensure all communities are able to leverage opportunities across the training, teaching, business, and practice of yoga.
Why now? The emphasis on equity in yoga is not new. Many in the yoga community have been driving the conversation and working to promote a yoga that is welcoming, supportive, inclusive, and accessible. We are thankful for the opportunity to learn from these leaders and to join the movement. Yoga Sutra 1.1—Atha yoga anushasanam1—serves as a call to action for all of us to engage, to assess the present moment, and to tune into what is happening now. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and rather will strive to amplify the voices, experiences, and work of those who continue to guide us through this process of learning and expanding our awareness and responsibility.

One way I can bring equity is by donating my resources to organisation working to
create good in the world for the folks that need it.
