Your next step is Affiliation

Our Affiliate communities and leaders are the stewards and heartbeat of Baptiste Power Yoga out in the world.

Affiliates are environments where empowerment, deep community, camaraderie, contribution, and transformation happen with real people, in real time.

Affiliate communities are made up of local and stable businesses built to last, and they are the place and platforms for positive change.

Affiliate locations are the homes of the growing number of Baptiste Certified Teachers around the world. By offering a space for these Teachers to lead the Practices and Techniques of Baptiste Power Yoga, the Affiliates become the hub for empowered teams of leaders making a real difference in the world.


Through Affiliation you can build a business on the practice you love.

Stand on the shoulders of the decades of ongoing upgrades that have gone into developing the Baptiste Methodology.

Success Stories

Why being a Baptiste Power Yoga Affiliate matters right now?

When I look to what other Affiliate studios are up to in the world, it continually encourages me to bring more purpose, clarity, and meaning into teaching the students at my studio, leading my team of teachers with more power and up-leveling what I am up to for the world, in my relationships, and within my local community. There is an entire community and team behind me when I get scared, lost, alone and out of sorts that have had their moments of the same worries and doubts and they won’t let me stay stuck there. Depending on what I need at any moment I can reach out to them (other Affiliate owners and leaders of this work) and be heard and supported to step back into being a powerful leader and teacher. And just by being a part of this network, I’m supported, I know I’m not alone and that what I’m doing is making a huge impact.

Adrienne Smith

Owner, Power of Your Om

There is a power that is generated by being a Baptiste Affiliate studio, having an aligned vision with something bigger, and being connected to source. As an Affiliate, we are part of a global community with a shared methodology, a movement for transformation and empowerment. The energy in a Baptiste Affiliate is palpable when you walk through the door: no matter where you are, you know you are home.

Debi Grilo

Studio Owner, Practice Yoga

What I have learned over the years is that I can do things on my own or I can tap into something greater by uniting with others. As a studio owner, Baptiste Yoga and the Affiliate Studio community have become as imperative to my studio as my practice is to my life. The depth of community within the Affiliate Studios gives me access to new ways of thinking, delivering, and leading. I am challenged, supported, and inspired by a global group of people who truly care. Baptiste Yoga has transformed who I am and the community I lead. ~ Leslie Chapman, Owner Toledo Yoga, a Baptiste Power Yoga Affiliate

Right now being a Baptiste Affiliate matters because it provides clear brand recognition in a city with lots of yoga options. We were always teaching Baptiste Power Yoga but when we became an affiliate our mission became clear and class sizes grew. As an affiliate owner I have the foundation and support I need to be up to something bigger than myself. Being part of the greater Baptiste Community in this unique way has created a deep commitment from my teachers and deep community with our students. It has definitely been the best decision I’ve made for Up Yoga.

Owner & Founder, Up Yoga

Becoming a Baptiste Affiliate was a big step in the life of Small World Yoga. As Executive Director of a young nonprofit organization, having the Baptiste Institute’s name associated with SWY was a way to give additional credibility as we look to grow and expand our brand in the world.

The methodology of Baptiste Yoga is closely tied to SWY’s own core values and mission; built around connecting people and creating a sense of community, but also our work of growing people and supporting people in finding their purpose so they can lead their fullest lives.

Baptiste Affiliation has provided broad connections to like-minded, service-oriented resources and yoga studio expertise beyond our immediate local community in Nashville. What’s becoming possible is the potential to influence and grow our local vision bigger with the support of like-minded leaders who speak the same language and are up to creating similar things in their own communities.

In cities like Nashville that are filled with a variety of power yoga and studios, the Baptiste affiliation has helped create clarity around the specific style offered in our community. It has allowed our leadership team to more clearly define the culture within our studio, strengthened our teaching team and ultimately created a more consistent student experience.

One of our core values at SWY is growth. Partnering with the Baptiste Institute to host programs like the Baptiste Power Yoga Teachers Course and encouraging teachers to attend week-long programs is just one of many ways we live out that core value, with opportunities for our students and teachers to grow in life-changing ways.

One of my favorite African proverbs says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together’. That phrase comes to mind anytime I reflect on my experience as a Baptiste affiliate and is one of many reasons Small World Yoga chooses to be a part of this global community of leaders, entrepreneurs and inspiring individuals making an impact.
