aYs offers a bursary fund to support the ongoing yoga study and training of members in financial difficulty. People who have been members of aYs for at least two years may apply for up to 50% of the costs of a workshop, retreat or training course run by an aYs teacher.
Applicants must fill in a brief form, and must provide two written references on separate sheets – one from the course provider, and one from another aYs teacher, such as the applicant’s personal teacher.
Applications should be made at least 3 months prior to the course/workshop to be attended.
If successful, the payment will be made directly to the workshop/course teacher, allowing them to give the applicant a corresponding discount. The beneficiary will be asked to submit some feedback on the course or workshop attended. Where appropriate they may be asked to write a short reflective piece for the Journal or Website.
