2021 Online YTT Scholarship Opporunities

This past year has highlighted the importance of inclusivity and diversity across all social landscapes, including within the yoga space and demonstrated the financial hardships that many yoga teachers have faced while trying to share their passions and earn a liveable income.  I have been reflecting on my own place of privilege and how I want to contribute to building a more equitable and inclusive yoga community. 

 

The intention of our new scholarship program in 2021 is to support people of differing intersectionalities, including students and teachers of BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+ and differing abilities on their journeys to become a yoga teacher or continue their yoga education. We hope this helps to expand the presence of more diverse voices in yoga. 

 

We also hope to support yoga teachers who are already teaching yoga professionally, but have faced substantial financial setbacks on account of the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope this scholarship helps to support their continuing yoga education in order to benefit their yoga communities. 

 

We have designed two scholarship options to help empower students and teachers who otherwise may not have access to this training opportunity. 

 

 

 

 

Scholarship One | Inclusivity in Yoga Training Scholarship

 

The Inclusivity in Yoga Training Scholarship will grant the scholarship recipient with a 50% discount on an online Yin or Restorative Teacher Training. One scholarship may be awarded for each online YTT in 2021. 

 

The intention of this scholarship is to contribute to broader diversity and a more inclusive representation of yoga. We are committed to building a yoga community in which all folks feel welcome to show up as they are, share their experiences and learn in a safe environment.

Scholarship Policies (please review)

 

Submitting an application for a scholarship does not guarantee that you will receive one or reserve a place in the program for which you applied unless the scholarship is granted. 

 

If you plan to take the program whether or not you receive a scholarship, you may make a reservation to guarantee your spot. This will require paying 50% of the course fee to hold your place. 

 

Scholarships cover 50 percent of training tuition. You must be able to pay the remaining 50% to attend the training. It it helps, we can arrange a payment plan for the remaining 50% to ease any financial stress. 

 

You must be able to attend the dates of the training which you have applied for.

 

Scholarships are not transferable to other events or participants. Scholarships may be revoked if the recipient fails to respond or maintain attendance.

 

Scholarship applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
