Apply for Our International Day of Yoga Grant

Last Updated: June 3, 2015

In December 2014, the United Nations declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. In honor of this global celebration, Yoga Alliance® is offering four grants to members of the yoga community in order to help them organize and implement an International Day of Yoga event in their communities.

Now through May 21, submit your application and you could win one of our four grants of $1,000. Yoga Alliance’s Education Committee will review the applications at their next meeting and winners will be notified by May 31.

This opportunity is open to everyone in the yoga community — it is not limited to only Yoga Alliance members.

How will you celebrate the very first International Day of Yoga?

While our committee will consider all event ideas, we will be especially excited to see ideas that:

  • Foster community involvement for your city/town
  • Reach new practitioners and/or educate more people about yoga and its benefits
  • Help underserved populations
  • Emphasize environmental issues related to global climate change
  • Are exceptionally creative, original and/or innovative

We’re excited to hear your plans. Keep an eye out for the announcements of our four winners throughout the month of June!

Update: the entry period for our contest has ended and winners have been selected. Thank you to all who submitted applications, your participation is greatly appreciated. Make sure to keep an eye out for our articles on each of our four winners in the coming weeks!
