Healthcare Professional Scholarship

yoga4cancer is thrilled to announce the 2nd year of financial support from Here to Be (a program of lululemon)- to provide scholarships for Healthcare/Medical Professionals to attend yoga4cancer Teacher Training programs. Both Here to Be and yoga4cancer are committed to better integrate active yoga into the everyday care of all cancer patients during treatment and cancer survivors in recovery. These scholarships will make that possible.

We are offering 16 partial scholarships to attend a 2018 Online + Weekend training. This 45 hour specialized training is conducted over 10-week via online & distance learning, culminating with a weekend in-person intensive. The yoga4cancer yoga teacher training is 45 hour CEU credits including the essential research, practicum experience and support to best apply yoga principles to those touched by cancer.

Leverage your community!

Getting the certification and qualifications to teacher yoga to cancer survivors isn’t always affordable. We know for many of our community the costs are daunting. Also, we know for many of our trained teachers setting up a class can be expensive.  We face the same challenges and we work hard to provide scholarships through fundraising and grants. BUT we also ask our community to do the same. Together we are better!

Past and present students have used it successfully to raise funding and awareness of your certification, attract future students, get visibility with local hospitals and cancer centers so that ultimately your certification is being well used and rewarded.
