Help Us Grow

Shut Up & Yoga was born out of a desire to share about the world of modern yoga using critical thinking and creativity. We publish because we want to embrace the complexity of our world, create a space for candid and open-minded conversations, and use that space to ask all our uncomfortable, funny, and most of all, burning questions.

We’re a fiercely independent publication, a small team of little human beings with big ideas. With your help, we’ll continue sharing with curiosity, heart, intelligence, and honesty all the thought-provoking discussions we have in mind.

We want to take those discussions as far as they can go. And for that, now more than ever, we need your help.

Why Support SU&Y?

Community

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

This African proverb summarizes our outlook on the work we do—it is much bigger than us. We press the “publish” buttons, but you give our content meaning and life.

Independence

There is no big publishing company behind SU&Y and we intend to keep it that way. Our freedom is our most important asset, and we want to keep making the decisions on the topics, art, questions, and the people we work with to deliver honest content.

Free quality content for all

Quality content and modern yoga education should be available to all. Each person who can support us allows us to create educational and thought-provoking materials for everyone.

When you support, all grow.

What You Get

What to expect from our content:

• Critical thinking. There is no room for spiritual BS whatsoever.

• Intellectually stimulating. Our pieces are meant to inform your practice on and off the mat in new and original ways.

• Educational content. Learn from our knowledgeable writers about teaching, moving, meditating, living.

• Practical, actionable. Our articles contain tips to evolve in your practice and life as soon as you’re done reading them.

• Our writers collective includes some of the most independent thinkers and innovators in the current yoga scene.

• Our goal is to create a library of accessible and high-quality content to inform, challenge, and enhance your practice, physically, mentally, socially.
