JBYC Seva Scholarship Program

Seva: “An act of selfless service, a way to give your time and energy to the greater good.” In yoga practice there is a concept known as Seva.  Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one's spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community.

 

We believe that the practice of yoga should be available to everyone, because everyone can benefit from yoga and meditation.  We also believe in “Seva,” through the act giving back to the community.

 

In an effort to encourage the true spirit of yoga, Just Breathe Yoga Center is proud to offer a Seva scholarship award to individuals in our community who wish to take classes but are experiencing financial hardship or who cannot afford to do so.

 

You need not be an expert yogi or even have practiced yoga before; the only thing needed is a passion to participate and a motivation to utilize the tools and techniques of yoga to benefit your life. We look forward to finding candidates who are interested in being a part of the JBYC community.
