At Essence of Living, we give out two scholarships each year to those who dream of becoming a teacher, but may not have the financial capability required to pay for the course. We offer our scholarships to people at any level of experience who have lots of passion and a readiness to learn. Pilates? Yoga? Both?

Are you passionate about?

Yoga/Pilates | Health/Fitness | Mindfulness/Wellbeing | Self-Development

The program

The scholarship program requires 10 hours a week working in the Essence of Living business under the direct guidance of Michelle Cassidy and the EOL management team. The carefully selected candidate will learn the ins and outs of running a successful business and is given unlimited classes to develop their yoga and Pilates practice for six months during the scholarship.


- All Teacher Training course hours

- 10 hours Work Experience weekly (6 months)

Please note that all work experience hours must be logged and accounted for otherwise we cannot ensure that you will become a certified teacher.

Scholarship full for 2021 and 2022. Applications for 2023 open.
