ABOUT THE DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP

The Carried Downward Breath Diversity Scholarship is a partial tuition scholarship (for yoga teachers applying to the Carried Downward Breath - Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, at Sacred Sounds Yoga), who identify as being a part of an underrepresented group within America and within American Yoga. Being deeply committed to the truth that diversity is a blessing, richness and strength, the CDB Diversity Scholarship aims to amplify and empower underrepresented voices, overall and within the context of Yoga. And in so doing, enrich us all.
