Yoga Village Teacher Training Scholarship

YV TT Scholarship Hey Yogis - I have something very exciting and special to announce to you today.

Enrolments are now open for the 2015 Yoga Village Teacher Training Scholarship Program.


Teaching yoga has changed my life.

I feel grateful every day that my 'job' helps people to feel good, get sensitive, listen to their body and connect to their true selves. What a freakin' blessing. Being a yoga teacher also allows me to express myself creatively through sequencing and class themes, to meet the most amazing people and to be part of a community in a way that supports my own health and happiness. Not to mention I get to help spread the teachings of yoga to a wider audience.

However, I almost didn't apply for my first teacher training.

I knew deep down in my heart that teaching yoga  was exactly what I wanted to do. So why did I almost miss out on my first training? I couldn't afford it.  I had just finished a very expensive psychology degree and without professional career prospects - I continued to work in a bar that helped me fund my education. While you can make a pretty decent wage in a North American bar, I had  a huge debt hanging over my head, expensive rent and despite my best efforts I was barely scraping by. The idea of spending $5000 on a teacher training, plus flights and accommodations, was just too much.

Seeing how much this training meant to me - my family banded together, and decided to pay my tuition for my first teacher training, as a University graduation present. If I hadn't been met with such generosity, I'm not sure where my path would have taken me.

I feel incredibly lucky, that I'm now in a position to be able to give something back, to pay it forward and to step into the cycle of abundance from a different position.  I'm literally typing this with a massive grin on my face, and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart.

We have decided to offer 1 space in the 2015 Yoga Village Teacher Training, to a dedicated student  of yoga who could otherwise not afford to take the course.

HOW IT WORKS

+ If you are awarded the YVTT 2015 scholarship your tuition will be waived - excluding costs for text books, yoga classes ( outside the 8 weekends ) and the 5 day residential retreat.  The exact amount for the retreat has not yet been determined, however we estimate costs at approximately $1000. 00. We will only charge you the actual cost of the retreat ( i.e. food & accommodation ) and will not make a profit from this expense.

+ If you apply for the YVTT 2015 Scholarship - you must be able to cover the above costs yourself. The universe helps those that helps themselves .. ya dig?

+ You must be available for the dates of the YVTT 2015 program - which you can review HERE

+ You must live in - or be able to travel to Sydney for the training

HOW TO APPLY

+ Copy & Paste the questions below into a word document.

+ Answer all questions from your heart, with honesty.

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

+ The scholarship will be awarded based on:

c) Your desire to actually teach yoga ( help others ) rather than a purely self- development motivation for taking this course.

You’ll hopefully find that multiple people in the city came to yoga because they wanted to heal in some behavior. Reformed folks, custom essay writing company worried CEOs, and single mothers everyone joins together to breathe in the community and grow through the exercise.

My friend who works in a essay writing service company told me that from yoga we can relax our mind and become peaceful. If it is correct so I want to join yoga classes. Can you suggest me someone who are best in the town?
