Shut Up & Yoga is an independent digital magazine and collective of yoga teachers, writers, and illustrators. We take a humorous approach to dissecting popular ideas on health, yoga, and self-development.

Practical. Visual. Funny.
We believe in quality over quantity, honesty over being liked.

Our mission through words & art is to question, inform, educate, challenge ideas, and debunk myths; in other words, we’re ready to have uncomfortable conversations.

Some of our favorite topics include functional movement, yoga injuries, science & the history of yoga, modern yoga, the teaching & business of yoga, boundaries, social media & yoga, mental health. We create unique guides on yoga in different cities and honest reviews of yoga studios across the world.
