IYCVT’s Community Engagement and Scholarship Fund Mission:
The Iyengar Yoga Center of Vermont seeks to make yoga accessible to under-served individuals and groups in our neighborhood community and beyond. The aim of Iyengar yoga is to allow any individual, young or old, firm or weak, healthy or ailing to benefit from this practice for greater physical, mental and spiritual health. Our vision is to develop financial resources through donations and grants to aid individuals and groups who may not have access to this resource. We believe it is through creating a truly accessible and inclusive yoga community that we find strength and support in our practice, both individually and as a community.
Donations and grants to the fund will help create:
full sessions of classes awarded to individuals with financial need
low-cost or no-cost classes for specific groups in the community
low-cost or no-cost private sessions for individuals with acute therapeutic needs
No amount is too small! Here’s how your donation might be used:
$25 helps one student participate in a group series
$75 allows an individual to get private treatment for a therapeutic condition
$100 pays for a whole session of classes for someone in financial need
Your donations will be used entirely to pay teachers for their time and to offset costs of the space, and never for anything else. However, please note that at this time since we are a for-profit business we can not offer any tax-exemptions on your donations. We thank you for being an active part of this community!
