We believe in the power of Yoga to help in trauma and recovery healing. We are excited to offer scholarships to aid in making yoga financially accessible. Scholarships are awarded based on grants and charitable giving from our supporters so availability of funds is based on what we have received.
How much money will I recieve?
Monies Received: The size and availability of the scholarship is directly related to how much money we have raised. At this time, we are offering scholarships up to $500.
