In an effort to provide financial accessibility to yoga teachers interested in educational opportunities, Naada Yoga is offering partial scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be welcomed as Naada ambassadors representing the values of accessibility and carrying the mission of our organization beyond the yoga studio walls.

Naada Yoga has three core values: Passion, Inclusiveness & Action. To date we have seen visible results in the areas of passion and action, while inclusiveness remained a more nebulous concept; achieved by including individuals from across many races/ages/industry sectors.
During a 2017 series of workshops and discussions hosted by the Yoga Mala Foundation, it came to our attention that, due to longstanding structures and systems in our society, leadership opportunities and programs like ours may have been viewed as less than inclusive. This scholarship program is meant to break down such barriers, making Naada Yoga’s teacher training program a more equitable opportunity for all. With all of this in mind, Naada Yoga is continually taking steps to ensure that our school and our teacher training program participants and graduates reflect the diversity of our community.
