Wondering how to make it work? 

For context, many Yoga Teacher Trainings cost $4,000 or more, and we offer our trainings at $2,995. Our education-specific pricing allows more educators to gain access to these practices and certifications.

We also provide trainees the evidence needed to request third-party funding sources such as school site funds, PTA/PTO grants, other local grants, DonorsChoose, and GoFundMe. We offer need-based partial scholarships and flexible payment plans. Through all these options, more than 3,000 educators have made this incredible investment in their well-being and career growth. 

Trainees can also opt to earn continuing education units (CEUs) and graduate school credits that may lead to salary increases (check your district’s policies). Grads have also chosen to earn additional income with their new certifications and skills.

Funding & Support

Once you apply, our team is available to work with you to make this life-changing training possible, for you and the community where you will spread wellness and share these practices. Thousands of educators have successfully funded their tuition through community sources, 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
