Teacher Training Scholarships

Mindful Inclusion and Diversity Scholarships

Our neighborhoods need more yoga teachers with diverse backgrounds to lead classes and share the physical and mental wellness that yoga offers. In order to build inclusive, healthy and vibrant communities, Cleveland Yoga proudly offers partial and full scholarships to our 200 hour program for BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and other groups so all voices are represented.

 We are committed to elevating the community by making our studio a place that celebrates and values diversity and supports the valuable and inspirational viewpoints of all voices.
