Apply for the 2016 Spring Scholarships from Yoga Alliance Foundation

April 4, 2016 

2016 is a big year for Yoga Alliance—we’re pioneering national studies, accelerating our advocacy efforts to protect and promote yoga and even launching a new designation.

One of the most exciting developments this year: we’re awarding more Foundation scholarships than ever before. This spring, the Yoga Alliance Foundation will award nine scholarships to yogis who want to deepen their practice by using yoga to serve their community. Three awards of $1,500 each will be available for aspiring yoga teachers, and six awards of $3,000 each will be awarded to RYT 200s or E-RYT 200s looking to hone their teaching skills by attending an advanced training. That’s over $22,000 that we’re giving back to the yoga community.
