Yoga Training Scholarships

The PYC Scholarship Fund is one of Prana Yoga Center’s giving back initiatives. It awards tuition scholarships to dedicated yoga students based an expressed interest in deepening their study of yoga, committing to the practice of yoga and paying it forward.


Scholarship applications are currently open for the following:

*Scholarships are not renewable and must be repaid to Prana Yoga Center if the student drops out and does not complete the program. The awards are for tuition only and do not cover application fees, travel, food, accommodation, required books, classes or workshops, or other expenses for certification on any program


Students eligible for tuition scholarship must be local area Illinois residents and commit to practicing yoga at Prana Yoga Center. Eligibility does not guarantee a scholarship.

Candidates must :

  1. be a local area Illinois resident
  2. have been practicing yoga for a minimum of 2 years

  • Scholarship funds are limited to 1 scholarship per program.
  • Scholarships are applied to the standard price of training, not early bird specials. Early bird specials are specially priced for those who join early and purchase training in full.
  • Submitting an application does not register you for the training. You may register and pay in full for a course prior to learning if you have been awarded a scholarship, with the understanding that if you do not receive a scholarship, you will be responsible for the full training tuition.
  • Submitting an application does not guarantee you a scholarship.
  • You may apply for more than one training, however, only one scholarship will be allowed per individual per year.
