Yoga Alliance® Foundation Scholarships

Yoga Alliance scholarships are intended to support yoga teachers, business owners and professionals in their continual learning and development. We are proud to help our scholarship recipients begin or advance their journeys as yoga teachers.

Yoga Alliance Foundation recognizes that yoga can have many therapeutic benefits; however, Yoga Alliance Registry’s standards for the curriculum of an RYS do not include training in yoga therapy. Yoga Alliance Foundation will direct its scholarships for use in starting or deepening an applicant’s yoga education by attending a Yoga Alliance Registry RYS, not for expanding an applicant’s training to yoga therapy techniques.

Past Scholarships

Each year, we've added more scholarship opportunities for the yoga community. In 2013 and 2014, we awarded over $10,000 in scholarships to six inspirational yogis. We are proud to share the stories of our past scholarship recipients:
