Equitable Space Scholarship

At Seeking Space Yoga, our mission is to remove the stigma and stereotype that yoga is for a particular demographic or population. We believe representation matters, and to create a space where all feel welcome, we need to invest in expanding our community and our teachers. 

The Equitable Space Scholarship program is a brand new initiative created to open up opportunities for underrepresented communities to access and immerse themselves in the practice of yoga. Recipients of the scholarships will receive a 50% discount toward the cost of yoga training or toward the cost of a 3-month unlimited yoga membership.

With this scholarship, we aim to overcome some of the financial barriers to yoga education and to maintaining a regular practice for BIPOC individuals and sex-industry professionals, two communities who have traditionally been underrepresented within yoga. 


If you are interested in helping to expand the Equitable Space Scholarship program, please email us at connect@seekingspaceyoga.com, sign up for a monthly supporter membership or donate directly at the link below.

 

Donated funds will go to covering the remaining 50% of a scholarship recipients' costs and to funding additional scholarship opportunities.
