The Universality scholarship has been inspired at Swan River Yoga to constructively unify a conditioning, translation, expectation or social status that too often limits yoga.  Swan River Yoga firmly advocates and encourages unity in diversity and each beings right to authenticity. We would like an all-inclusive community. We feel that diversity and inclusivity honors the most sacred teachings of yoga and bolsters our studio’s mission of Universality. In this cosmology, no one is left out. No “one” represented. No “one” slandered. Everyone is growing in diverse settings together.

We wish to offer this scholarship opportunity to an individual who faces discrimination due to their political view, gender, economic status, sexual preference, gender identity, ethnicity or national origin, cultural heritage, religious background, veteran status, body type, body age, body ability or life circumstances such as physical, mental, emotional substance or sexual abuse, trauma, war, depression, anxiety, mental wellness, emotional wellness or a broken family or culture.

Swan River Yoga believes in the strength of community to heal the sense of otherness that many among us feel. We actively support all beings as a part of our space and hold space for you. We wish to encourage you to allow the means of your hardship to be the very catalyst and launch of your support in more authentically identifying with the struggles of others in total and fierce compassion.

We welcome all submissions to this scholarship. Please send us an essay, video, art piece or other form of self-expression that answers these questions:

  1. How do you support the union of community and Universality through your individual expression of freedom?
  2. How will you advocate and encourage all beings to practice yoga if chosen as a form of Universality?

Submissions can be emailed to deb@swanriveryoga.com or dropped off at the front desk at Swan River Yoga, 2940 Canal Street. **Note: Please include your first and last name as well as contact information**

Yoga welcomes everyone. We look forward to awarding this scholarship to someone who will come to discover the benefits of a deeper knowledge and practice of yoga, and who will in turn pass this knowledge and practice on to others.
