The Essence of Indra

Indra focuses on supporting and strengthening individual understanding of our unique role as holistic health practitioners and community leaders. We empower one another to feel confident sharing the true essence of Yoga, far beyond asana, allowing the ancient practices to become accessible for wider and more diverse circles of the collective community.

Indra focuses on Ayurveda, Trauma-Informed studies, Social Justice Responsibility, The roots of African Yoga and studies as well as the traditional 8-limbed path and how Yoga directly informs inclusion and accessibility for everyone. We are committed to more diverse representation through empowering BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and disabled wellness community leaders through Indra’s grant and/or scholarship program. We reduce our environmental footprint by offsetting carbon credits, giving back to the communities we offer programs, and working to create necessary environmental awareness education.

Indra alumni are part of an ongoing support platform offering continued education, mentorship, and collaboration opportunities for years to come.

The coursework in this program is 300 hours and will qualify graduates to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-300 and RYT-500 levels.
