BIPOC Yoga Teacher Training Scholarship


Yoga Garden SF recognizes the structural and institutional racism in the self-care, wellness, and yoga communities. We are committed to removing financial barriers to yoga education in order to make yoga more accessible and the teaching more representative.

To that end, we are offering a minimum of one full scholarship per training on the list below. You may apply for more than one training, but only one scholarship will be awarded per person per calendar year, and you must submit one application for each training. You will be notified via email once the scholarship decision has been made (approximately 1 month before training starts), and we’ll let you know at that time if any partial scholarships are available. 

**If you are applying for an in person training, please make sure you are able to commit to being at the Yoga Garden studio in San Francisco during the scheduled times. The event pages on state if a training is in person or virtual.**

Who is eligible:
BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) interested in starting or deepening their teaching practice.

Scholarship Amount:
This scholarship will cover 100% of the tuition for the teacher training program of your choice. To-date we have had the opportunity to award more than $43,000 worth of tuition.
