Yoga Haven

We are a grass roots organization with limited funding. We ask that the scholar communicates with us should there be a change in commitment in the program, so scholarship funds can be allocated to other applicants. *We have the right to rescind scholarship if commitments are not met.

The Scholarship Program will have access to classes 7 days a week. You may choose to practice anytime starting from 6am – 9am Monday to Thursday; Saturday and Sunday 8:30am – 10:30am. Friday Led Class begins at 7:30am, followed by chanting and yoga sutras discussion, which is required.
