Setu is an inclusive yoga community where practitioners of different nationalities, gender identities, body types, and life stories are welcome and respected.
Setu translates to ‘bridge’ in Sanskrit. You might recall it from yoga class, Setu Bandhasana, bridge pose. It’s a heart opener that awakens the senses.
Setu is people first. We promote and support yoga teachers of all backgrounds through our website and social media accounts. We feature teachers in interviews on our blog. We create in-person events to bring teachers together, so they can learn from each other and nourish their lives through positive relationships.
Setu is possible because of all the amazing teacher who have joined. Any teacher with 200+ hours of training can have a profile on our site.
We welcome you to Setu.
With love and peace,
The Setu team 💗
