Yoga To The People is going international! We’re bringing our inclusive, donation-only classes to a select number of well-known hostels, through thoughtful synergistic and supportive participation in like-minded communities. The ethos similarities between Yoga To The People and the world’s most welcoming hostels are many. The opportunities for using our increased energy to encourage our shared active, international, and open-minded community to visit and explore our respective spaces are vast.
The benefits to visitors and local residents of our accessible-to-all, donation-only classes offered in hostels include strengthening and expanding peace of mind, body, and community. Yoga To the People’s founder will be visiting cities in Asia, Australia, and Europe during 2019 to discuss its carefully curated international presence and benefits to participating hostels.
The initial Yoga To The People pilot program at Tel Aviv’s Abraham Hostel immediately generated highly positive ratings and recommendations from guests and local community residents on popular travel and lifestyle social media platforms. For more information about the amazing impact of the Yoga To The People’s established presence in major cities in the United States with large student and visiting international populations please explore the rest of our website.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does it take to set up a Yoga to the People studio at my hostel?
Participation in YttP’s international pilot program starts with visit to your hostel by a member of our executive team. An on-site visit is imperative for both sides, not only to ensure an alignment of values and priorities, but also to ensure there is an appropriate space for the yoga classes. Finally, in person visits are not only fun but by far the best way to develop an ongoing relationship in anticipation of your participation in the energized international YttP community. If you’re interested in having someone from YttP visit your hostel for further discussion please fill out the contact form and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
Where do instructors come from?
Yoga to the People conducts a rigorous teacher training program that consists of over 200 hours integrating hands-on practicum, history, anatomy and philosophy. Currently, the teachers in our international program consist of those who have received certification with Yoga to the People, which draws students from major cities both within the US and globally and will relocate to your city to teach at your hostel studio.
How big does the yoga space need to be?
The ideal space is one that holds 20+ yoga mats comfortably. However, as we have found on countless occasions in every single class and studio, spaces meant for 20 can hold up to 2x – 3x as many people, all committed to their individual practice and mat, supporting each other with great combined energy. Ideally the space has a floor that can be easily mopped down or vacuumed directly after the class.
What does a typical yoga class schedule look like?
Each schedule can and will be tailored to the individual hostel’s preferences and abilities.However, the YttP pilot program recommends 10 – 14 classes a week, with 2 classes offered each day, as each hostel’s space and previously scheduled activities allow. A successful program is one with a consistent presence, therefore, we do not recommend this program to hostels that are not able to consider offering at least one class daily, at least 5 days a week.
What does it mean to be "donation based"?
Donation based means that a class participant may donate any amount whatsoever with which they feel comfortable: there is never a minimum donation amount. The donations are used to support the teacher/teachers and any yoga related administrative requirements.
To whom it may concern;
My name is Maoz I non and I am one of the owners of the Abraham Hostels, a group of hostels located in the most popular and toured locations in Israel.
I heard about Yoga to the People two years ago, when they approached us in regards ef to a collaboration between YttP and Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv. I was intrigued by the idea of a daily donation-based yoga, offered to our guests in our Tel Aviv location. Tel Aviv is a fun, upbeat city, with a big focus on wellness culture.
We started our collaboration with Yoga to the People almost immediately. At first, we launched a month long pilot, and after concluding that the results for both sides were beyond expectations, we started our mutual journey.
The work towards a collaborative product, offering donation-based yoga practices to both locals and our guests in our Tel Aviv location, was seamless and I would even dare to say fun.
We realized YttP added some great value to our brand in two aspects: First, the responses from our guests were incredible, many of whom mention the yoga studio and the teachers in their recommendations, and tell their friends about us. The second aspect is the connection between the hostel and the local community. Abraham Hostel believes in creating a community, for both locals and tourists. The YttP agenda towards a sense of community and togetherness is quite similar to ours, and together we were able to create a place for locals and guests to meet, socialize, and share an experience alongside each other.
We believe in this idea more than ever, and we highly recommend other hostels around the world to create such a base for people to form a community. We believe our passion for making our hostels feel like home, is one of the reasons we are being considered one of the most popular hostel brands in the world, YttP helped us established another way to explore the concept of home, and to grow a community, together.
In hostels we trust! And yoga too!
