Breathe For Change strives to make our trainings accessible and affordable to educators.
A typical Certified Yoga Teacher Training costs up to $4,000, and we offer our trainings at $2,650. On top of this, we provide up to $500 in need-based scholarship and offer flexible payment plans that have allowed more than 1,000 educators to make this incredible investment in their well-being and career growth.
You'll see three pricing options: Request Support ($2,150), Support Myself ($2,650), and Offer Support ($3,150). Please select the option that best reflects your financial situation.
Last but not least, trainees can opt to earn continuing education units (CEUs) and graduate school credits that often lead to salary increases (depending on your district’s policies). Many of our grads also go on to earn additional income with their new yoga teaching skills.
We encourage you to not let price be a barrier to applying... Our team will work with you to explore funding options!

Even with scholarship, we know that our training requires a significant investment. Hundreds of our educators have received other forms of financial support for training tuition, including:
- School or district administrations committed to supporting teacher well-being and student social-emotional learning
- Other grant-making organizations focused on education, wellness, and/or social-emotional learning
- Crowdfunding efforts via sites such as Donors Choose and GoFundMe
- Family members and loved ones who understand the tremendous benefits of reduced stress and enhanced well-being for educators

Breathe For Change is a life-changing and transformative experience that focuses on the personal growth of each individual teacher. The training team creates an environment in which all bodies are welcome and encouraged throughout the whole process. The content is rich with research-based practices and usable materials for immediate implementation in the classroom with students and staff. I am a complete believer in this amazing program and their approach to Changing the World One Teacher at a Time.

I Breathe For Change because I believe everyone should have access to yoga. Yoga is a practice that encourages breath, healing, and presence and all people; young and old need to cultivate self-love and care. Yoga is often not accessible to low-income or communities of color in East Oakland. I am joining Breathe for Change in changing that reality. Yoga is for every body!

I found the Social Justice workshop really moving. I wasn't drawn to B4C because of the social justice component and was surprised by how moved I was by it. Hearing everybody's story helped me feel more compassionate to strangers walking around on the street. I am not sure what action I will take in the future, but having those conversations in my mind will have an impact on how I move through life in the future.
