Many of those who practice yoga don’t see their identities represented by those who teach it.
Our Scholarship Program provides underrepresented individuals an opportunity to not just become certified yoga teachers, but also to apply their knowledge to create inclusive and equitable yoga spaces in their local communities.
Specifically, we seek to support applicants who embody four key elements:
Diversity and Equity
We provide an accelerated path to yoga teacher training for historically underrepresented minorities in the yoga space in order to create a more equitable and inclusive yoga culture.
We seek to understand the diverse and intersecting identities of our applicants and provide support to those who are often underrepresented in mainstream yoga culture.
We support individuals whose financial and life circumstances mean they might otherwise never have the opportunity to complete yoga teacher training.
We support individuals with established local engagement and a vision to create new spaces to practice yoga in their communities.
