The faculty and staff of Soma Yoga Institute stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the protestors across the country calling for an end to systemic racism. We support racial equity and are dedicated to training yoga teachers who promote inclusivity and accessibility. We commit to doing what we can to increase access to yoga’s healing potential in BIPOC communities. To this end we are pleased to announce our new online Yoga Teacher Training Scholarship Program.
