The AYF Scholarship offers partial and full scholarships to those who would not normally have the means to afford a high quality yoga education. AYF seeks to diversify the population of yoga teachers in NYC as well as to weave together a colorful fabric of experience and background to serve those who may not be exposed to the healing practices of yoga and support of community.
The Teacher Training education provides a focus on: a therapeutic method appropriate for all ages and levels, trauma sensitive training, and yoga for disadvantaged populations. AYF student teachers and graduates have the responsibility and benefit to be integrated into the on-site and off-site yoga and Seva programs by giving back what they have learned.
