Rhonda was a teacher training student who was killed in an automobile accident the day before she was to enter our teacher training program. She intended to teach yoga classes in her neighborhood in the Parkland/Park Duvall neighborhoods. The Fund gives grants for these purposes:
Many of the teachers on our schedule have received scholarships. Some of our best teachers such as Leroy Chittenden, Bev Hurt and Becky Thompson got started in the volunteer program. Leroy teaches at senior centers, children's day care and churches throughout Louisville. Bev Hurt started the yoga program at the Fern Creek Community Center and her classes have raised over $20,000 to support the Center.
Teacher training scholarships are only given to students with financial need who have regularly attended classes at Yoga East for one year. To apply for a scholarship, you must have submitted an application to a teacher training course and received an acceptance letter. Contact Laura Spaulding for a scholarship application. Phone 502-585-9642.
Our Mysore Fund gives grants for these purposes:
Many of the Ashtanga teachers on our schedule have received grants for study in India. Most yoga teachers need assistance to meet the annual study requirement. The average one-month trip to Mysore costs $2,500-$3,000 per year. Yoga East has trained three Authorized Level 1 teachers and one Authorized Level 2 teacher. This has enabled us to have one of the oldest Mysore programs in the world (since 2002) and one that is recognized by Ashtanga yogis throughout the world. Yoga East has hosted both Saraswathi and Sharath Jois, the heads of the Institute, one of the few yoga schools in the world to host both.
Your donations make this possible because we also charge one of the lowest tuition rates in the world. No student is turned away from the Mysore program due to financial inability to pay.
Mysore scholarships and grants to attend Mysore classes are only given to students who have attended Yoga East classes for a minimum of one month. See your regular teacher for a recommendation. Grants for study in Mysore are only given to students who have attended Mysore classes at Yoga East for a minimum of one year. See Laura Spaulding in person at Mysore class for an application.
