Yoga Bridge Newsletter

The newsletter of the Yoga Association of Alberta (YAA), Yoga Bridge, is published three times a year to provide articles of interest to the Alberta yoga community and curious readers. It is published under the guidance of an Editor and an Editorial Board, all of whom are yoga practitioners with extensive writing experience. The Editor and Editorial Board receive overall direction from the YAA Board of Directors and the Executive Director. Members of the Editorial Board (excluding YAA Staff) and the Editor are volunteers.


Submit full-resolution images to the Executive Director at [email protected] or email to arrange file sharing.  Images may be used on the website, advertisements, and the best images may even grace the cover of the Yoga Bridge!

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. In an increasingly digital world, the stories pictures tell help connect us as a community, bridging the space of distance and time.  Send us your best pics!  Please also submit a signed Photo Release


Submit proposals to the Editor at [email protected].  Before submission please refer to the full Article Submission Guidelines.

If you have an idea for a feature article or other written submission, please send a brief email to the Editor with a one paragraph summary outlining your subject, purpose, main point, primary source of information (why you are the person to write this feature), and your connection to it (e.g. are you a yoga teacher, student, or practitioner?).  We welcome ideas for features on asanas, pranayama, meditation, yoga traditions, interviews with or stories about teachers and yogis, yoga philosophy, benefits of yoga, your experiences as a practitioner or as a teacher and how they have helped you and others to live with more self-awareness.  All material must be the original work of the writer and not previously published in any medium or format except with written permission from the original publisher, specific to reprinting in the Yoga Bridge.

Articles that promote any individual or organization will not be considered for publication. But rather, we encourage you to inquire about our advertorials and advertising space.
