Grant and Scholarship Program

Indra Yoga Institute is committed to celebrating diversity across races, ethnicities, belief systems, genders, sexual orientations, ages, body types, and abilities. We acknowledge a longstanding lack of representation in Yoga in the West and are dedicated to doing what we can to increase access to Yoga’s healing potential in communities of need and throughout marginalized populations. As a training institution, one of the best ways we can continue our commitment to increasing diversity in yoga spaces is by helping to grow a teaching community that is represented by people of diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Curriculum Focus of This Unique Training

Yoga Therapeutics & Trauma-Informed Training

Deepen your understanding of how trauma affects the brain and the nervous system. Learn how trauma lives in the body and the healing potential available through embodiment practices and breathwork.  Create and maintain inclusive environments that support your student’s emotional exploration. Increase your awareness and sensitivity when working with trauma survivors and marginalized communities. Enhance your ability to share Trauma-Informed Yoga classes through inviting cues, consistent classes, and intentional necessary hands-on adjustments. Practical Somatic Experiencing exercises will be shared as well as sequencing techniques that support the nervous system.

Meridians and Chinese Medicine Studies

This is where we weave the philosophy together with anatomy and practices to create a sense of awakened understanding as an advanced yoga teacher. Apply the natural rhythms and subtle energies of the five elements to your life on and off the mat.  Begin to learn about the nadis and main meridians, as a pathway for the five elements.  Learn general movements that access the meridians, how the matrix of the 12 meridians of Chinese Medicine and five elements create and influence the “energetic effects” of your practices.  Learn and apply safe acupressure points along the meridians in your practice and daily life as part of your self-care routine.

Social Justice Responsibility

Yoga is Social Justice. Learn more about how to decolonize yoga, make yoga for ALL bodies, dismantle racism, identify cultural appropriation and support each other through the necessary work we have a responsibility to do as a community.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle

Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing sister science to Yoga. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance. Throughout the training, you will be offered routines, techniques and practices to cultivate and share on your personal and professional life.


When the breath achieves the qualities of prolonged, deep, even and subtle, it is the state of Pranayama. Gain an in-depth understanding of the theory, practice, and teaching of pranayama and various forms of meditation. Through intermediate and advanced instruction, participants learn how to create a variety of pranayama sequences for specific needs. Accompanying the regular practice of pranayama are daily meditation practices exploring a variety of mindfulness techniques.

Community Leadership

Confident, skilled and knowledgeable leaders are needed to inspire, guide and foster dynamic organizations and communities. While we may be willing to give our time and talents to serve others, we must first cultivate the connections, skills and confidence to take on leadership roles. Together we will practice powerful non-violent communication skills, and further develop our personal visions for careers as wellness entrepreneurs.

Environmental Responsibility

Our goal at Indra Yoga Institute is to increase our awareness on all levels. At Indra, we dedicate time and resources to finding solutions to the environmental challenges facing us now and in the future. More science and more technology cannot get us out of our present ecologic crisis. A global awakening must take place to shift the current conscience. Through literature, poetry, dialogue, and practice, we uncover the power of yoga to connect all beings and bring about global change.

Wisdom Traditions

To guide the process of personal transformation we explore African studies and history, the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and so much more wisdom to help inform our actions in this world. As we become more aware of our history, we tap into our own source of creation and expression.

Personal Empowerment

Our ability to thrive creatively depends on the generosity we offer each other through sharing of knowledge and skills, resources and strategies. Immersion into the creative process is woven throughout the training. Within this safe and uplifting community we will explore how to deepen and share your personal creative voice through art, writing, music, dance, poetry and other forms of free expression.
