Yoga Teacher Training Scholarships

Service Grants 

YiA is an acronyn for YOGA IN ACTION. At YiA YOGA we firmly believe in community service! To promote community service throughout the globe, YiA offers scholarships to qualified students. Our current scholarship fund offers partial tuition scholarships ranging from $250-$1,000 to applicants who submit a service scholarship proposal, are accepted, and successfully complete their project.

How it works

STEP 1: Submit a Community Service Project Proposal

The ideal project would involve bringing yoga to underserved communities including, but not limited to: children, prisoners, terminally ill, PTSD sufferers, minorities, and public servants. You might offer a community yoga classes at your local church or temple, you might donate your time at an elder care facility or work with cancer patients in hospitals. We are open to any and all ideas that use yoga in service of your local community.

  • Minimum project commitment: 20-40 service hours
  • Location: any (ideally your local community)
  • Project start/end date: must complete your project before the course

STEP 2: Our Team will Review Your Application

We are very open to any idea that integrates yoga and service, so we will review your application with that simple objective. If we feel like this is a worthwhile project, based on the time commitment (on your part), the scope of the project, and the funds available, you’ll be awarded a tuition scholarship pending the successful completion of your project.

STEP 3: You Complete Your Project

If your project was to teach a 3-week course to at-risk teens, step 3 would be to successfully complete (and document) your work. If possible, we’d love to see photos and video documentation as you go to inspire other students to serve in their communities as well.

STEP 4: You Get Funded!

When your project has been completed successfully, you’ll then receive the agreed upon service scholarship ranging from $250 - $1,000. Please note that scholarships and other discounts cannot be combined.
