YTT Scholarship

The Ashiyana Teacher Training Scholarship is designed to support those individuals who dream about becoming a yoga teacher but cannot afford to cover the costs of the Training Programme.

The Scholarship offers two subsidised places at our 4-week Intensive Training Courses (200hr YTT) at Ashiyana in Goa – held biannually each year during February-March and October-November.  We will cover 90% of the tuition cost - the scholars will need to contribute just 10% towards the tuition fee.  Accommodation (including three meals per day) will be provided by us.

How to Apply

If you would like to apply for this Award, you are requested to write a 500-word piece about yourself, including the following information:

  • Why do you think that you will make a good Yoga teacher?
  • Why do you want to teach?
  • Why do you wish to train specifically at Ashiyana?

The essay should also touch upon your future Yoga teaching plans and your reasons of eligibility for a subsidised place on this Training.
