Yoga and Animal Rights Alliance


The Yoga and Animal Rights Alliance is the creation of our own Sweethome Teacup. Through her years of teaching and yearning to spread the teachings beyond the human realm she has landed on YARA. Sweethome will be leading several retreats throughout the 2017/2018 cycle, and will continue to build and spread the work. If you would like to be kept in the loop of the goings on of YARA, please email

This precious gift of life is undeniable and persistent. Yoga and Animal Rights Alliance is a grassroots organization that directly aligns the practice of yoga with animal rights activism. This organization offers yoga retreats at or near animal sanctuaries around the world. As part of our practice, a significant aspect of the retreat includes direct engagement by being a volunteer to the animals who have been rescued from dire circumstances, as well as a humble witness to the rich and diverse culture that is in deep relationship with the situation at hand. Our volunteer work will deepen the yoga experience, as we become humble change-makers and stewards of diverse life.

This is a campaign about that bigger vision of weaving together education, self care, service, and action. This is a dream of awakening people to the realities of our actions
This work is advocating for those who have been misunderstood, mistreated, and neglected. This work is for seekers.

This is where my heart expands and an unstoppable desire to be of service arises!
