Affiliate Empowerment Summit


Affiliate Empowerment Summit Update: 

It is with a heavy heart that we announce our beloved space—the Baptiste Sanctuary in Ojai, CA—is among the countless other homes and properties to have succumb to the raging California fires. The structures, bridges and much of the vegetation are gone. The Baptiste Sanctuary (a Baptiste Foundation project) was intended to be a home for Baptiste Yoga; a place to lead empowering programs for youth, wounded warriors, people in recovery and those who would otherwise not have access to Baptiste Yoga. 

On the closing day of the upcoming Affiliate Empowerment Summit, we were going to travel to the property for the first-ever, on-site Baptiste Yoga event. This excursion was intended to share our new and developing Baptiste Foundation project with you—our community. We could hardly wait. Tours were arranged to share the beauty of the land, Baron was going to lead a master class, there were food trucks coming, and a band was going to play for a night of dancing under the stars. It was intended to be a momentous day for a remarkable group.

We acknowledge any inconveniences and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being all-in with us. Thank you for all the love, well wishes and contributions that have poured in over the last few days. We are developing more ways in which you can support and, in the meantime, for those of you who are called to do something now, every contribution makes a difference. Donate here. If there is a time to demonstrate who we are for the world, this is it. We look forward to what's about to be created.

If you have questions, please email
