Sometimes we all need a little help from our friends.
Let’s be honest. None of us are rich.
Getting an advanced certification to teach yoga to cancer survivors isn’t always affordable. For many of our community, yogis and cancer survivors, the costs are daunting. We face the same challenges and we work hard to provide financial support through fundraising and grants. But we also ask our community to do the same. Together, we are better!
Our scholarship programs are made possible by generous donations and support of our foundations, community and donors. Without their support and yours, we are unable to provide access to those who need the support. Together, we can help more survivors live longer, healthier and happier. Donate today to yoga4cancer Foundation.
Cancer patients and survivors come to yoga expecting yoga teachers to understand the benefits and risks specific to their needs. yoga4cancer Training Scholarships support yoga and wellness professionals who seek this necessary education to better serve the growing cancer community.
In 2021, we are able to offer 14 partial scholarships for the yoga4cancer Certificate Program. Scholarships of up to $700 per recipient will be awarded, which is 60% of the total cost of the 55 hour training. Recipients are required to pay the remaining balance (up to $499). Our intention is to continue to offer similar scholarships in 2022.
These highly competitive scholarships are awarded based on the specific criteria and require the recipients to support underserved cancer survivors and help advocate for Oncology Yoga interventions.
