Bursary Awards

Qualifying as a yoga teacher requires students to make a considerable financial investment in their future. As a registered charity, the IYT can offer financial grants towards your teacher training costs.

Through the generosity of our Abundance Club members, the Trust can offer a bursary award to one student on each of our teacher training courses. NB accommodation costs are not covered by the bursary scheme.

If financial circumstances are preventing you from following a yoga teaching path, please contact your course tutor. If an award is available for the course they can help you through the application process.

About the Abundance Club

Members of the Abundance Club pay a small monthly standing order into the IYT's Small Society Lottery fund. In return each member has the chance of winning one of the three monthly cash prizes.

25% of all the funds raised go towards our Bursary Award scheme enabling students to qualify as yoga teachers who may not otherwise have the means to do so.

This year, the Abundance Club is funding three bursary awards to students to help them pay for their course fees for 2016-17. By joining the Abundance Club you too can help others benefit in this way.

aparigraha is the concept of non-possessiveness, non-greed and non-attachment. It is one of the yamas, or codes of ethical behavior, listed in Patanjali's Eight Limbs of Yoga.
