Putting Our Money With Our Values

Putting Our Money With Our Values

I’ve had a lot of people tell me to “stay in my lane” or “stick with yoga.” I’m not going to do that. And I’m thrilled to see that other organizations are joining the fight as well.

I want to back up my beliefs with action, and I’d like to do what’s within my power to help.

That’s why starting today, Man Flow Yoga will be donating 10% of all profits to Black Lives Matter and the Human Rights Campaign, to help further the rights of the Black and the LGBTQIA+ community.

I want to show my son that stating your beliefs – even when you know it’s going to make some people mad – is important. And taking ACTION to reflect those beliefs is equally important.

Institutionalized inequality exists. If we can fight it; if we can do our part to lessen its impact, all of us will be better for it.

All purchases from now through the end of June – including new memberships as well as existing membership add-ons (download access, Body By Yoga programs, etc) will be contributed to these donations.

I’ve had several people inform me that they’ll be canceling their memberships in response to this. Let me say this very clearly – the threat of removing financial support will not silence me. Your money is not more important than my values. And I am 100% willing to lose customers for that.

    Extremely admirable, Dean. As a gay man, I’ve been following you for years now as I always got the sense that you are one of the good ones. This proves I was right. No doubt you will make your family very proud, not only for being the most intelligent, effective, and impactful yoga & fitness instructor…but also a son, husband and father of integrity.

  2. Your son is going to grow up to know how lucky he is to have a dad like you. Happy belated Fathers Day and congrats on your newborn. I just joined for the 6-week challenge, and I’m already impressed before the first workout Monday. Thanks for all you’re doing.

  3. Dean,

    Thank you for sharing your convictions and your integrity. I am proud to be associated with Man Flow Yoga. I am also so happy that these values will be passed on to your son.
    Keep speaking your truth!

  4. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a fair price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!

  5. Dean – Thank you!!
    As a gay man partnered for 26 years on my own renewed fitness journey I’m glad to have found your programs and to know that you share my values. Thank you and may you never be silenced. All my love and respect to you and your family.
