Yoga for Pain Training - application for community contributor rate

We provide two scholarship places at each Yoga for Pain Foundations Training. One is awarded to a skilled yoga teacher from regional Australia; the other goes to a teacher or health practitioner who will bring pain-sensitive yoga or a related service to an area with socio-economic challenges.

This application is for the community contributor rate, offered to increase services to communities in need around Australia. Information is available in the course prospectus.

Places are highly competitive and offered to the person who most demonstrates a commitment to capacity for making a difference in communities of need. The specific offering is not important; what matters most is your willingness and ability to implement it, and to share your learnings for wider benefit. It should also correlate with your training and skills.

You may wish to prepare your answers in a separate document, and to read the training content and outcomes.

Successful applicants are required to implement what they described in their plan (with recognition that details may change), and to share their work with us for the purposes of case studies and demonstrating the impact of yoga on communities in need. This may be used for promotional material, or posted on relevant websites such as Yoga for Pain Care Australia, or presented at conferences or scientific meetings. We anticipate this will help your own learning and showcase your work to people who need your services.

Yoga for Pain Care Australia is a social enterprise that exists to help all people with pain live healthy, meaningful lives. We are not a funded organisation, so this special rate is made possible by our team, who want to help support others who wish to contribute to their community.
