The Bhaktishop Scholarship Fund
Having a hard time but don't want to give up yoga? Want to come to yoga but don't have the resources?
In addition to continually offering you some cheap and by-donation options, we also have a program to help seekers of self-care through yoga from all income situations. Persons of Color are encouraged to apply, and do not require income verification to receive Scholarships. By submitting the application here, you can become eligible (based on financial need) for a deeply discounted pass to yoga. Benefits are given monthly. Please download the application for more details, and as always, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. We hope to continue to serve you day in and day out.
***Each January, in an effort to broaden equity and inclusion in the culture of yoga, we offer at least one or more Equity Scholarships for any student of color to attend our Yoga Teacher Training Program. We recognize that it is difficult to do the work of broadening this equity when people do not see themselves represented in the practices, studios, and publications/media around them.
We believe that there is a need for many different voices to teach in all kinds of communities. We are also committed to supporting and cultivating the people, language and approach that most effectively communicates yoga teachings and informed community-building work. Please inquire here if you or someone you know are interested in this Teacher Training scholarship.
The Bhaktishop's Scholarship Application
The purpose of this benefit is to make yoga available to anyone, regardless of their financial situation.
Even as we endeavor to continue to give in your service, our funds are indeed limited, and so submitting an application for our Scholarship does not guarantee that you will receive one. The benefit is available in two levels: 10-class cards for $30 or $60. Please indicate on the application which level you are capable of paying for. Please also note that you may apply for this scholarship once every four months, and you may receive a scholarship no more than three times in one 12-month period, to be sure that we are able to share the equity. These class cards expire after 6 months, just like our regular cards do.
Application details: We will contact you by e-mail when your application has been received and processed. If you receive a Scholarship, we will inform you about it via email and give you the details on its beginning date. Please email us with any questions about the process here at email@example.com.
If you are interested in applying for a Workshop Scholarship for a specific workshop, please indicate that on the application and fill in the blank there with the appropriate workshop that you would like to attend, as well as what you are able to offer to pay towards it.
Thank you for your love of yoga, your interest in caring for yourself and your community, and wanting to share it with us here at The Bhatkishop Know that we will carefully consider your request.
Please bring your completed application (along with any required documents) to the Center, or email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
