The Yoga Girl® Scholarship Program
We have established the Yoga Girl® Scholarship because when we say we want everyone to be a Yoga Girl®, we truly mean it. We want to be part of building a world where every person can achieve what they choose, without exclusion due to systemic disadvantage. We recognize that full equity is a lifelong vision and we are committed to doing the work required to bring us closer to that goal every day. Yoga Girl® believes justice is an essential part of our work. In order to fulfill our mission and build a more just and equitable world, we must take into account our society’s systematic inequalities, including those based on race, class, gender, ability, and geography.
We are committed to actively working toward greater diversity and creating social justice in our workplace and in our physical and online communities. (Read our full Statement of Values for Equity and Social Justice here).
The Power of Practice
Access to yoga classes and other wellness and healing avenues is disproportionately available to the white community. With this knowledge and with a yoga platform of our own, it is our responsibility to ensure that the BIPOC community as well as other under-resourced groups are represented and have equal access to our offerings. To that end, we offer free memberships and access to our online programs on our platform for members of the BIPOC community. We are currently able to offer a limited number of free quarterly (3-month) memberships and access to our Choose Yourself 7-day online retreat.
If you are a member of the BIPOC community, our applications for memberships and online programs are currently open! Please click the "Apply Here" link below to complete your application. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or wish to speak to our team directly.

Debra Silverman Applied Astrology School
Recipients for Debra Silverman's Level 1 Applied Astrology scholarship for September 2021 have been chosen and notified. Please check back in 2022 for future astrology scholarships.
We are so excited to announce that Yoga Girl® and Debra Silverman Astrology have teamed up and are also able to gift a limited amount of complete, fully-paid tuition scholarships for Debra Silverman’s Level 1 Applied Astrology course, which you can learn more about here!
This course is offered twice a year and runs for 6 weeks. In it, you will learn not only about the language of astrology and the basics of reading your natal birth chart, but you'll also discover more about yourself on a deep, intimate, and compassionate level.
Retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings
We are particularly interested in welcoming people from the BIPOC community and other under-resourced groups to our retreats and yoga teacher trainings. We do this because we know that this work is powerful and access to these programs can further empower those who haven’t previously had access. We are able to offer a limited number of scholarships every year for all retreats and teacher trainings we host.
At this time, due to the current world climate and COVID-19, we are not offering any in-person retreats or teacher trainings. Please follow us and Rachel on social media, and be sure you're subscribed to our newsletter for announcements of when our next in-person programs will take place.
