Financial Aid for Oncology Yoga Professionals

Sometimes we all need a little help from our friends.

Getting an advanced certification to teach yoga to cancer survivors isn’t always affordable. For many of our community, yogis and cancer survivors, the costs are daunting. We face similar challenges and we work hard to provide financial support through fundraising and grants. But we also ask our community to do the same. Together, we are better!

Our scholarship programs are made possible by generous donations and support of our foundations, community and donors. Without their support and yours, we are unable to provide access to those who need the support. Together, we can help more survivors live longer, healthier and happier. Donate today to yoga4cancer Foundation.

Organization Sponsorship

Leverage Your Employer or Hospital

Many cancer centers, hospitals and institutions are investing in Integrative Oncology Services like yoga. They require training and thus provide funding for training. About 20% of our trainees receive funding from their institutions, either in part or full, to participate in the training. Plus, it provides the necessary motivation to enhance the Oncology Yoga program at the institution and provide safe and effective interventions.
