The YogaSpace
Scholarship Fund

Recently we decided to turn our attention to the folks in our own community who might not be able to afford yoga by starting the YogaSpace Scholarship Fund. Donations from our Community Yoga class will periodically support financially challenged students so that they can attend classes at YogaSpace.

If you or someone you know would benefit from yoga, but truly can't afford it, we invite you to apply for assistance from the YogaSpace Scholarship Fund. We will choose recipients who not only demonstrate financial need or hardship, but who are also willing to commit to their personal growth through the practice of yoga.

To apply for a ten class pass (a $160 value), send us an email with a short essay that includes the following:

- Name, address, phone, email
- A brief statement explaining why you (or a friend) need assistance
- Why you want to do yoga and/or how yoga might change your life
- How you might share the benefits of yoga with others

In exchange for our assistance, we simply ask that you complete the circle of giving & abundance by offering your help, time, care or talent to YogaSpace or someone else in need.

Blessings,
- Gloria, Saeeda and Heather
