“If you can adapt to and balance in a world that is always moving and unstable, you learn how to become tolerant to the permanence of change and difference.”
Like all regional associations in the Iyengar world, the past year and a half has required our association to exercise adaptability and tolerance for change. So many CIYTs and yoga studios have struggled to survive financially during the pandemic. Many have lost the studios they struggled to create and others are hanging by a thread.
The Scholarship committee acknowledges that while yoga is meant for all, circumstances can often create financial, cultural, and geographical barriers to practice. Scholarships are one step toward widespread community access to the transformational practice of Iyengar Yoga.
IMIYA will make 10 awards of $800 each, payable to either an Iyengar Yoga studio or to a current CIYT who teaches Iyengar Yoga. The funds shall be used to assist serious students in their study of Iyengar Yoga.
Applications are being accepted now and can be accessed here. To be considered for scholarship, applications should be received by December 15, 2021. You will be notified whether or not your application is approved by Dec. 30, 2021. Contact us if you have questions.
