Giving Back

Shanti Yoga gives back in many ways.

1. To the local communities where we teach:

– Shanti Yoga supports the communities where we teach by purchasing local products whenever possible.

– At least 10% of profits per season are spent on local initiatives that benefit the community.

– Finally, we emphasize hiring locals whenever possible, which provides a necessary source of income.

2. To our students:

We believe in giving back to our students in as many ways as we can.

– One student per training attends completely free via scholarship. Application must be approved and truly based on need. Food and accommodation not provided.

– Our trainings are donation-based. You only pay our costs: staff salary, materials, etc. Private room is included in the small registration fee. We provide two tea & fruit breaks. To keep costs low students are responsible for their own food.

– At the completion of the donation-based course, if you choose to donate over a certain amount you are eligible to join our repeat program. This means you can attend the same type of future training program – as many times as you like in the future – for free! You just have to pay for your own meals and accommodations each time. Wow!

– If there’s need and aptitude we hire students to help with drop-ins and other tasks needed at the school. This provides valuable hands-on practice and experience.

3. To the larger world:

We utilize our numerous yogi contacts across the world to help our students in their future yoga careers, if they choose to pursue teaching. This helps spread yoga across the globe.
