We are raising funds to support one BIPOC yogi living in the Ottawa-Gatineau region in their journey to becoming a Yoga Teacher at a recognized Canadian institution/organization of their choice.
The cost of a Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) typically ranges
between $3,000 and $4,000 per student, which is hard to come by for most.
We hope to raise enough money to cover at least half of their registration cost (up to $1,500).
Donate and help us increase the number of BIPOC yoga teachers in Canada !
100% of the funds will be donated to assist selected BIPOC yogis
with their journey towards becoming yoga teachers.
Scholarships will be paid directly to the yogi's YTT institution of choice.
The yogi must be pre-registered for the YTT and we will pay the YTT institution directly.
The funds cannot be withdrawn by the BIPOC teacher at a later date (non-refundable).
