Yoga Scholarships

Jul 5 / FLY Team
Do you dream of becoming a yoga instructor but worry about the high costs of yoga teacher training?

There is no denying that yoga teacher training can be expensive. For many people, saving up to do their dream course takes several years. For others, the steep fees can be off-putting enough to make them feel like yoga teacher training is not for them.

However, many yogis don’t realise there are ways to get a discount on yoga teacher training or even attend the course for free. This is thanks to the introduction of scholarships. So what is a yoga scholarship, and who can apply for one? Let’s find out.

What is a Yoga Teacher Training Scholarship?

Yoga Teacher Training Scholarships are designed to help budding yogis with financial constraints pursue teacher training to share the power of yoga with others. In addition, scholarships make yoga teacher training accessible for all so that these life-changing experiences are not just for those with economic, social, and racial privileges.

The availability of yoga teacher training scholarships is slowly growing, but they each have their own criteria. Therefore, these scholarships are not open to everyone and are not a way to “win” free teacher training.

Some scholarships are aimed at BIPOC individuals, others are for people suffering economic hardship, and some are open to people passionate about bringing yoga to underprivileged communities.
