Yoga has crossed borders, regions, and cultures to connect people to their minds, bodies and souls. Despite the benefits of yoga, many yoga spaces and communities in the United States don't reflect the diversity of the country. The lack of diversity in yoga is perpetuated by media, advertising entities, and yoga clothing brands that portray yoga practitioners as white, thin, and upper-class. Melissa Ludwig seeks to eliminate these barriers and create a space where yoga can be practiced by a racially diverse community. She fosters a safe environment to honor what may come up, create space to feel feelings, and encourage movement to sync up with the power of the divine flow. This scholarship fund will help encourage BIPOC students who plan to become yoga instructors.
