Diversity, Equality, Inclusion

There is still much work that needs to be done to ensure greater access and equity in representation within the yoga and wellness landscape in America. One step in increasing equity within the industry is elevating opportunities and access for People of Color and those within the LGBTQIA communities to receive training.

"Teacher training was a fantastic experience. I loved learning about all aspects of yoga, but especially the theological beginnings. Teacher training changed how I practice. My practice deepened but more importantly I was ina place in my life where I was ready to receive transformation. Ytt changed how I see myself! And I can’t recommend it more. :)"

Cheryl Cotterell

"Yoga teacher training had been a long time dream that became a reality thanks to the accessibility and schedule offered by Practice Everywhere.  I learned from some of the best instructors, and partnered with some of the best women, who I'm grateful to now call friends.  I gained expertise, confidence and an excitement to share the practice I love with others.  Not to mention - we graduated in a Costa Rican paradise.  If I had to start all over again, I would."

Lin Rudder

"When I left yoga teacher training, I felt confident to lead yoga classes right away. Their training was a mixture of anatomy and spirituality that both honored the ancient roots of yoga while teaching safe physical movement. It gave me tools to deepen my own practice. I've been teaching yoga for three years, and I still rely on the solid foundation of this program."
