27 Apr Scholarships to Yoga for Pain Training
We provide one heavily subsidised place at each Yoga for Pain Foundations Training in Australia. Yoga for Pain Care Australia relies predominantly on volunteers and this place is made possible by our desire to make pain-sensitive yoga available to more communities who can benefit.
We also welcome inquiries from organisations interested in sponsoring a scholarship place within Australia and internationally.
Who is eligible?
One scholarship place is awarded to either a skilled yoga teacher from regional Australia who can demonstrate capability and intention to have an extended impact with their work in this field; or to a teacher or health practitioner who will bring pain-sensitive yoga to an area with socio-economic challenges.
What’s the aim of the scholarship?
Yoga for Pain scholarships are offered to increase services to communities in need around Australia.
What do you receive?
- 6.5-day foundations training
- Case study to profile your work
- Additional support to get your program up and running
- 3 1-hour mentoring sessions over six months
You pay $485. (Value of the program is over $1950)
How do I apply?
Via application form. Places are highly competitive. Applications for the community place are here.
(Dates of upcoming trainings are on our events page.)
What are previous scholarship winners doing now?
Past recipients of the regional rate include Jodie Gates who now runs Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis in Bunbury and Kirsten Mackintosh from East Gippsland with a large number of students with pain.
We can also offer Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training in your regional centre. If you would like to host us please get in touch.
