BIPOC Yoga Studies Program &  200HR YTT

MANIFESTO


 

Please read this before applying and make sure that this training aligns with your true North!

 

This training is for:

 

...BIPOC students to explore the practice of Yoga in a BRAVE space with a full BIPOC teaching team and student body. 

 

...Passionate students to further their own study of Yoga and/or as a tool to become a teacher.  To those who are interested in being Yoga teachers, Chakra Flow University will issue 200 HR YTT certificates, through the Yoga Alliance, only to those who pass and complete the full training. 

 

...Students that are interested in more than just pretty shapes. We will use the Chakra system, Yogic philosophy and Yogic practices to explore and unpack intersectionality, connect with truth, uplift ourselves and our communities, for self-care, and growth on the spiritual path.   

 

...Those seeking an alignment between the individual and the community. Students will ground in an understanding of how bias and white supremacy play a role in harm caused to under-estimated communities. This program will explore the impacts of race, gender identity, sexual orientation and disability and where each person plays a role in interrogation and intervention in bias and status quo. 

 

...Humans that acknowledge the effects of systemic racism. 

 

...Those willing to hold the space for vulnerability and honest sharing. 

 

...Beings who will not bypass or gloss over the uncomfortable work of questioning how we are complicit in oppressive societal structures.

 

...Those that believe yoga goes beyond just a physical experience. This training combines physical, spiritual and mental aspects of Yoga for a holistic approach to living and teaching the practice. 

 

...Students that are looking for a teaching staff that is fully committed to your growth and expansion and will be giving you all 100% of their energy, passion and knowledge. In turn we expect every student to do the same. Be prepared to move, sweat, do homework, have deep conversations and show up fully! 

 

...Humans that commit to making Yoga physically accessible for all. We will teach variations, sequencing, and cueing that decenters abilism and speaks directly to who shows up in the room. 

 

...Designed to nurture your unique voice. You will not be asked to conform to the mannerisms and speaking patterns deemed acceptable in a White centered society. Be loud. Be Soft. Be proud. Be Who You Were Born to BE. 

 

We welcome donations from non BIPOC people, who want to help make this training accessible to BIPOC folks.
