BIPOC Yoga Teacher Training

The Integral Yoga Institute San Francisco (IYI SF) recognizes the structural and institutional racism in Yoga and wellness communities, and acknowledges the lack of diverse representation in our Yoga classes.

In an effort to work toward dismantling this systemic racism and injustice, IYI SF is offering a scholarship-based Yoga teacher training for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) who are interested in becoming yoga teachers.

This teacher training will consist of 100% BIPOC teacher trainers and participants.

It is our hope that by encouraging a diverse range of teaching voices, we can help to create safe spaces where all students can feel represented and welcomed.

Your donation will help us offer scholarships to make this training affordable to anyone who wants to take it, regardless of their income level. It will also help us cover the expense of reviewing our training manual through an anti-racist lens and make any changes necessary.
