The lululemon ‘Here to Be’ Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship
Three and a Half Acres Yoga has partnered with Here to Be, lululemon’s social impact program that disrupts inequity in wellbeing through movement, mindfulness, and advocacy. As a Here to Be partner we are committed to increasing diversity in the yoga community and making yoga accessible to as many people as possible.
To celebrate Black History Month, and in connection with this partnership we are offering a Diversity & Inclusion scholarship that helps enable people from under-represented groups to participate in the Spring 2021 Trauma Yoga Teacher Training free of charge. This is not a scholarship based solely on financial need; rather, it is an invitation and incentive to those students who believe that, because of the way they present in the world, they would help to create a more inclusive and safe environment for others.
To be eligible, applicants must identify with one of the following categories and must complete and submit the application by April 1st, 2021:
-Person who is black, indigenous, or person of color
-Person with a disability
While we highly encourage you to apply if this resonates with you, please note only a limited number of scholarships are available for the upcoming April 17th & 18th 2021 Trauma Yoga Teacher Training. Please be aware our training is accessible financially at no cost when you commit to volunteer hours. We don’t want to leave any yogis behind, so please contact us with any questions or concerns relating to your application.
