About the BIPOC Scholarship
We at Boston Yoga School remain committed to yoga as a means of introspection and betterment of both self and the world. What does this mean right now? What does it mean to take yoga off the mat? The first line of the Yoga-Sutra says NOW begins the practice of yoga. NOW.
In this moment, to us, this means taking action. We will facilitate better education on social justice and anti-racism within and external to the yoga world. We will help diversify the spaces in the wellness industry currently occupied mostly by white people. We will dig deep inside ourselves and learn how we can be allies, supporters and actors of change. We will learn where we are complicit in supporting systems of oppression and stop immediately.
To begin our part, long overdue, we will be offering 10 scholarships to BIPOC for our fall online yoga teacher training, and two scholarships for all in-person training progrmas. We understand that this is not enough, but it is a step we can take right now. Take responsibility, look within, and act. NOW.
