Yoga for All

The School of Yoga (SOY) strives to include every individual by building a compassionate and nurturing culture of diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusive practices. SOY acknowledges that certain groups in our society are treated inequitably due to biases related to geography, race, color, culture, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic class, age, nationality, religion, gender and sexual orientation.

We respect and value the unique skills, experiences and contributions of our diverse community members. Equity of opportunity and access to SOY’s teacher training programs are part of our mission.
