One of the most important practices in yoga is seva,
the Yoga of Service.
It is integral to yogic philosophy.
It is not limited to teaching yoga.
TSY is dedicated to providing seva opportunities for our community.

TSY Community Scholarship Fund Drive
TSY’s mission is to provide access to yoga teacher trainings for all interested students. We are keenly aware that many would be students are shut out of trainings because of financial hardship. To date we’ve been able to offer a small range of scholarship and work trade opportunities, however we are a very small business with a limited budget.
The TSY Community Scholarship Fund is for dedicated yoga students who demonstrate economic need or hardship. The current drive is an on-going effort. Our hope is that we will be able to offer our first TSY Community Supported Scholarships by Fall 2015. Scholarships will be given based on the number of donations we receive and 100% of the monies donated will go towards student tuition.
If you are a graduate of our program, if you have benefited from the practice of yoga and/or from the work of our teachers, please consider donating to this fund by clicking on the link below.
Thank you for your continued support of Three Sisters Yoga!
