The Connective is cooperatively owned and powered by teachers. We provide a sustainable livelihood for yoga and movement professionals and raise industry standards for quality, diversity, anti-racism, and accessibility. We offer students an online space to explore movement, build community, and discover new potential.
Our vision at The Connective is to ensure movement professionals have the tools to thrive, and make the practices of yoga, movement and fitness accessible to traditionally underserved and marginalized communities.
On this episode I spoke with fellow founding members Tonie Warner, Markella Los, Sangeeta Vallabhan, and Liz Buehler Walker about what it means to create a cooperative business structure from the ground up, and our visions for the future.
Find us on Instagram @theconnectivestudio, and practice with our teacher-owners on The Connective Platform.
We’re currently raising money for three endeavors to grow our business and expand our impact: Teacher Support + Advancement, Technology, and Community Programming. Please help support our mission by making a one time donation or a monthly contribution via our Patreon page.
