2021 YITR Scholarship Fund

Since 2017, Yoga in the Rock has been regularly providing donation-based yoga in public parks all over Little Rock, Arkansas. During that time we've been thrilled to see a steadily growing and diversifying group of people coming to the yoga classes we organize; in 2019 alone, Yoga in the Rock (YITR) offered 15 donation-based yoga classes to over 400 participants.


Our organization celebrates the diversity in our city, and our mission is simple: to bring yoga out of studios (which are typically white-centered spaces) and into neutral settings where everyone can practice in community.  Not only is it important for people of color to be represented in local studios, it is crucial to developing communities that are effected by gaps in wellness services. Becoming a certified yoga teacher is a serious commitment of time, money, and energy. The cost of a yoga teacher training (between $2,000-$3,000) is often a barrier to entry. That is why we are proud to announce the launch of the YITR Scholarship Fund, which is exclusively available for people of color in Little Rock that wish to pursue further training in Yoga.

Our aim this year is to distribute 2x $500 mini scholarships (applicants may apply through our website, recipients will be selected by the YITR board). We will be collecting donations for the fund at all of our 2021 Community Yoga classes, and will update this page regularly to reflect that amount.  We encourage you to make a donation even if you can't attend a class!
