Yoga Alliance Professionals has partnered with eco-friendly yoga brand Ekotex Yoga to offers its members exclusive discounts on yoga mats and props, while promoting sustainability within the yoga community.
Based just 10 minutes apart in Edinburgh, Yoga Alliance Professionals is teaming up with the eco-conscious brand, which recently won The Good Shopping Ethical Company Award, to offer exclusive discounts to over 7,500 teachers.
Registered yoga teachers will receive up to 45% off the ethically made yoga mats and props with no minimum spend, a truly rare deal in the yoga world. What’s more, members will also be given the chance to sign up as Ekotex Yoga affiliates: gaining 10% commission with every purchase made through a personalised discount code.
The scheme seeks to support the yoga community after a particularly challenging 18 months for the industry. Now, as increased awareness for hygiene procedures leads more yoga practitioners to purchase their own yoga mats and props, Yoga Alliance Professionals members can gain rewards from referring their students to buy eco-friendly equipment.
Abbie Sweet, the founder of Ekotex Yoga, was previously a staff member of Yoga Alliance Professionals before forming the eco-friendly brand. Abbie has said “I began working with the Yoga Alliance Professionals team in 2013 and left to form Ekotex Yoga in 2017. Our warehouse and office are less than a mile from each other, so we are neighbours too! Ekotex Yoga would not be here today without the experience I gained from Bruce and the team. They are a brilliant support network and empowered me to create my own company. It is a joy to come full circle and partner with Yoga Alliance Professionals again”.
Bruce Mackay, the co-founder of Yoga Alliance Professionals, added “We are delighted to welcome Ekotex Yoga as our latest premium partner as part of an initiative to work with local businesses with a sustainable vision and excellent customer service. Our goal is to serve our members at an exceptional level by adding products, tools, and services to help teachers and trainers grow, achieve their goals, and thrive."
Yoga Alliance Professionals' collaboration with Ekotex Yoga is a clear commitment to highlighting the need for greater sustainability within the yoga industry. Starting with key figures, the yoga teachers, both organisations seek to raise eco-awareness and promote sustainable yoga purchases throughout the community.
