Scholarship information!

We offer 2 special scholarships to yogis in each round of teacher training who would otherwise be completely barred from participating. To be considered for this scholarship you may either send in a video or short (one page) essay about why you should be considered for the scholarship, and what you would do with your certificate if you were awarded the scholarship! 

Scholarship awardees will be asked to record a one minute acceptance video for our instagram community, talking about why you chose BSY Houston YTT and what you plan to do as a future teacher. We also ask our YTT scholarship awardees to help out in the studio as Karma yogis- something we can work around your personal schedule! 

Application deadline is September 19th! Awards will be announced on the week of September 20th!

For more information, or to submit your YTT scholarship essay or video essay, email [email protected]!



In the event a student misses more than 20 HOURS throughout the entire course of the Yoga Teacher Training, that student will not be eligible to receive a Yoga Alliance Certificate when the training ends. No refunds will be granted if you miss the maximum amount of hours (20 total), even if you choose not to finish the rest of the hours of Yoga Teacher Training.

It will be your responsibility to be up to speed on whatever material you miss from the absent days(s), with the help of your peers.
