A survey was created to determine whether or not there is a community of librarians/library workers who are also certified to teach yoga. The survey helped to identify the size of the community and explored the participant’s experiences associated with the dual skills sets. Results show there are strong benefits for those library workers who have their yoga certification, but there are also concerns and challenges that demonstrate a need for a more formal community and further research.
