Scholarship Application – Yoga Uttara: Land and Heart Practice
I am so pleased to award one 80% scholarship to a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training applicant. The application process has two components:
- A 500 word (or less) essay
- A two-minute (or less) video or slideshow
I love essays! They have a beginning, a middle and an end. They have a clear thesis statement and each section has a topic sentence. They clearly define themselves in terms of who, what, where and why.
Please write a short (less than 500 words) essay in answer to this question:
What is your dream project? Imagine that you can abandon all your responsibilities (and maybe even the life that you’re currently living) and start something new. Nothing is holding you back except your own fear. If courage is the only catalyst you need to get what you want, what would that be?
Describe your dream project in terms of:
- Where? Location! Where do you need to be?
- What? Resources! What do you need to get started?
- Who? Contribution! Who are you helping with this project? Who do you want to benefit the most from your work?
- Why? Reason! What inspired this project?
The project doesn’t have to include anything about yoga, but it can if you want it to. The intention is to start thinking creatively about your situation and how you see yourself contributing to the world around you. What does freedom and contribution mean to you?
I also love photos and videos! They illustrate the creative process. Include in this application a two-minute (or shorter) video or slideshow to illustrate the inspiration behind your project.
Please send essay and video or slideshow to

May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts words and actions of my own life contribute in some way.
