2024 Original Hot Yoga Teacher Training Scholarship
We are truly excited to announce that we will be offering two Diversity & Equity Scholarships to our upcoming 2024 Original Hot Yoga Teacher Training program. These scholarships are available to any BIPOC individuals (black, indigenous, or people of color) who are interested in pursuing a career as a yoga or fitness teacher.
We’ve created this program because we serve a diverse community of students and we want everyone to feel welcome and included at our yoga studios. In America, the yoga and fitness industry often suffers from a lack of racial diversity. We have witnessed this problem ourselves when seeking qualified staff for our studios. After launching our first Teacher Training programs in 2021, we recognized that we now have an opportunity to address this issue in a proactive and positive way.
It's our hope that this Diversity & Equity Scholarship program will help us to expand our community further and to reach people who might not be included otherwise. To date, we have awarded $4,200 in scholarships to our Hot Yoga & Core Fire Teacher Training programs. We are very proud of the inclusive community that already exists at our studio, but our work is not finished yet!
Please review all the course information on our current Teacher Training page, including details about course content, schedule, attendance, and graduation requirements. All costs for scholarship students will be reduced by 50%; all other program details and requirements will remain the same.
