Sponsor Women of Color Yoga Diversity Scholarship

Hello, we are Poderosa Movement. Poderosa Movement is a collective group of women coming together who are passionate about helping women of color in the spiritual wellness profession. 

Our Mission: 

Our goal is to help increase the number of women of color practicing yoga in our communities.  We hope to achieve this goal by encouraging women of color who are interested in becoming yoga instructors, or Yoga business owners, to take the necessary yoga training to make those dreams come true.  We hope to cover all costs necessary for those women of color who cannot afford the training but have the desire and interest in promoting diversity in their future yoga practice. 

This time around, Poderosa Movement would like to sponsor a woman of color to help her become a certified 200-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT) from a training scheduled to begin in the Fall of 2021 at Home Yoga studio in Temecula, California. We hope to sponsor a woman of color to attend this four-month-long training program. This particular yoga teacher training will be available online or in-person, to ensure its accessibility to the recipient.

The tuition for the yoga certification is $3,000 with an additional $120 needed for learning materials such as books.

 Our Goal:

We want your support in helping sponsor a woman of color who aspires to become a yoga teacher but does not have the financial means to cover tuition costs. An online application will be in place so that any woman of color can apply and explain why they should be the recipient of this scholarship/grant.

Poderosa Movement is also asking for an additional $1,000.00 of funds to raise to help cover the application fees and legal services associated with starting the Poderosa Movement Non-Profit. Poderosa Movement Non-Profit will be the platform for future grants and scholarships created by the non-profit.

 Your Impact:

Poderosa Movement is asking for a total of $4,120.00 fund to be raised.

$3,000 for Home Yoga Studio Yoga Certification Tuition fees.

$120 Books and material for yoga certification not covered by tuition fees.

$1,000 for Non-Profit start-up fees, paper filing, and attorney costs.
