Namaste!

We have been getting a lot of questions about how our members can engage with us and support us on social media, so we thought we would put together a handy guide with easy to follow instructions

Join the YAA Facebook Group

We have a Facebook Group for YAA Members! Here our members can post their upcoming workshops, sessions, classes, or any other content that they’d like to share! Click on the button above or follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Facebook account.
  2. Search for the group "YAA Members" by typing the name in the search bar at the top of the page, and then click on the group.
  3. Click on the "Join Group" button.
  4. Agree to the group rules (see our Code of Ethics).
  5. You will receive a notification when your request has been approved.

Once you are a member of a group, you can participate in discussions, post content, and engage with other members. We can't wait to have you!

Follow us on social media

Follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.  To help us appear higher in your feed so you will see more of our posts and content, you'll need to interact with us in one or more of the following ways:

ADD US TO YOUR “FAVOURITES” ✅

  1. On Facebook, go to our homepage and "Like" our page if you haven't already. Once it shows "Liked", click or tap on it.  The "Follow Settings" window will open where you can then select "Favourites", set any notifications you'd like, then click "Update" below.
  2. On Instagram, go to our homepage and "Follow" us if you haven't already.  Click or tap on "Following". A window will open where you can choose "Add to Favourites".
  3. On Twitter, go to our homepage and "Follow" us if you haven't already. Click on the bell beside the Following button to turn on any notifications you'd like to see.

Now that we’re one of your favourites (thank you!), you will likely see more of our posts. When you do, it really helps our account to grow in the digital world if you engage with our content. What does engagement mean?

ENGAGE WITH OUR CONTENT ❤️

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Like/heart our posts. 💞
  2. Comment on our posts. An emoji, tag someone or just a few words mean a lot (to us AND the algorithm that shares our posts more widely).
  3. Share our posts to your feed or your story. This way your audience will see what you like, spreading our content to new people.
    • On Facebook, click the share arrow at the bottom of the post and select where you want to share it.
    • On Instagram, click the paper airplane icon at the bottom of the post to share to your story.
    • On X (formally Twitter), click the two arrows icon on the bottom to retweet, or quote tweet to add in your own comments, or the share button for more options
  4. Save our posts in your accounts.
    • On Facebook, click the three buttons at the top right-hand corner of the post and select save.
    • On Instagram, click on the bookmark icon on the bottom right-hand corner under the post’s image to save to your collection.
    • On Twitter, click on the share button and hit bookmark.

We need YOUR HELP to grow our community and spread our messages, but we also want to share all the unique perspectives and wisdom about yoga that you have with our audience! This type of content is what our growing community finds incredibly valuable. How can you do this?

ADD YOUR OWN CONTENT 🤩

  1. Tag us!  We're happy to share your cool or educational yoga content which will help amplify it on your own social media. Ads & business posts (classes, workshops, retreats, etc.) can be shared on our stories, but we aren't able to share them as posts on our page.
    1. On Facebook @yogaalberta
    2. On Instagram @yogaassociationofalberta
    3. On Twitter @YAAYogaAB
  2. Send us Photos or Short Videos
    1. Send us photos of you doing your thing, or any interesting photos we can repurpose for our yoga-based content.
    2. Videos under 30 seconds work best in portrait orientation (hold your phone up and down, not sideways). These could be a quick tip, a bit of yoga philosophy, or even a background video of a class or a beautiful spot that inspires you.
    3. Email submissions to
  3. Share your stories/tips/knowledge in writing or in a voice memo.
    1. Send your written content and we can repurpose.

    3. Email to

Send Us Your Stuff

Advertise in the Yoga Bridge!

Consider advertising in the Yoga Bridge when you:

  1. Have more lead time on your event (longer workshops or substantial retreats). Deadlines are August 1st for Fall Issue, October 15th for Winter Issue, and February 15th for Spring Issue.
  2. Need to reach an extremely engaged and targeted audience of 2,000 Alberta yoga teachers and students.
  3. Want your ad to be present in people’s homes over a longer period (people tend to hold on to Yoga Bridge newsletters until the next one comes out, which gives you a longer shelf life - months compared to days).

We also offer free listings to Full YAA Members in the Yoga Bridge and on our Events Page, which provides you a more permanent digital listing that is searchable.

Submission Guidelines

Be a YAA Ambassador!
