Project Description

The yoga space has for too long been lacking in the diversity that we teach, and while we have always opened our doors to a rich tapestry of human beings from many backgrounds and cultures, we want to do more to broaden the scope and reach in our community . 

We believe that yoga should be accessible to everyone, and want to do our part to increase diversity in our students, and in our teachers delivering yoga to our communities. Yoga communities often TALK about diversity and TALK about accountability, but like our friends at Dancing Dog Yoga in Atlanta, we want to DO more.  We want to amplify available Yoga learning opportunities for all people of color.

With this in mind, we are offering five full scholarships EVERY MONTH starting in July 2020 to our Advanced Online Yoga Teacher Certification program for BIPOC.

This training begins online on July 12, 2020 and is a fully certified Yoga Alliance approved program.  

We want to spread the love of yoga by empowering people of color to share this gift with the world.
