Yoga is frequently touted as being a method to decrease stress, increase flexibility and strength, improve mental clarity and is accessible to everyone. However, as we look at images in the media and even in our own community yoga classes, it's not as diverse as the practice can and should be. Yoga magazines and publications who contact us for ads, often cite how affluent their readers are. Meanwhile they tout the benefits of yoga with most images containing young, thin, caucasian women. There's barely any individuals of color, people over the age of 40, or anyone who has a BMI index above 20%.
Dosha Yoga Teacher Training combines yoga and ayurveda to teach instructors who can teach populations of all shapes, sizes, and races. We want our graduates teaching to diverse communities and expand the practice to people regardless of their affluence, ethnicity, age, body type, or financial status.
