Equity Rate Tuition for QBIPOC
We understand that many in our community have financial limitations and it is our intent to make all our offerings as accessible as possible to those who wish to attend.
We believe that coming together in mutual support and moving away from valuing dollars over humans will make all of our communities healthier and happier.
The reduced rates we offer are a critical component to making our program inclusive, accessible and equitable. Our equity rates are given to those whose voices have been historically marginalized and silenced, and are therefore underrepresented as yoga and meditation teachers. This means non-white, queer, people with disabilities (visible and non-visible), and people who cannot typically access these kinds of programs due to prohibitive cost and/or cultural insensitivity.
