DIVERSITY IN YOGA
As Baptiste Power Yoga leaders, we believe that diversity and leadership go hand-in-hand.
Through the Diversity in Yoga Scholarship Initiative we want to invite BIPOC voices into the Baptiste community; we acknowledge they have been missing and our yoga community needs to be more representative of the world we live in.
Our purpose is to disrupt the drift and create leaders inclusive to all communities.
