In 2020, I was called to action when I heard George Floyd cry out for his mother while a policeman kneeled upon his neck and took his life. I no longer could remain silent about the rampant oppression of persons of color in this country. I could no longer sit back in my privilege and comfort and do nothing to support equity and justice.
The Nourish UNITY Teacher Training Fund was created to promote equity in the yoga field for Black people, Indigenous people, and other People of Color. We also want to include differently abled bodies, as well as transgender and non-binary persons. Our minimum goal was to raise enough money to award full tuition to one individual a year to a Teacher Training of their choice. Having reached that goal, we are now accepting applications. go here for more details.
If you would like to donate to the Nourish UNITY Teacher Training Fund, you can send a check made out to Nourish BodyMindSoul to our office at 674 1st Crown Point Rd Strafford, NH 03884 or you can press the DONATE button at the bottom of this page.
I am so excited to create a community that not only welcomes diversity, but celebrates it.
