IAYT Seva Award Service Through Yoga Therapy Presented by the International Association of Yoga Therapists
and Give Back Yoga Foundation
Innovative, up-and-coming yoga therapists bringing therapeutic yoga to unserved populations: Please tell us about your project, and you could win IAYT's Seva Award!
Who Can Apply?
Individuals or small groups may apply. At least one person actively involved in the project must be a C-IAYT or currently enrolled in an IAYT-accredited yoga therapy training program. (If there are multiple applicants, all must be IAYT members. Haven't joined yet? Do so today, and help support IAYT's mission, here.)
What Projects Will Be Considered?
Projects can be proposed or already underway and should benefit a population that might not otherwise be able to access yoga therapy. We're looking for innovative work that fosters accessibility, inclusivity, and diversity in the field of yoga therapy. The plan must include specifics about how the project will be communicated to and integrated into the community.
