Loti (Joan) Mason-Grant: December 16, 1958 – May 21, 2009
“We need this transformation of consciousness to sustain us
in the work that must be done.” Loti
Loti was a treasured friend, a dedicated and thoughtful yogi, a passionate activist, and a wise teacher. She encouraged critical thinking about our place in the world, and facilitated transformation and growth on our planet. She was a fearless leader in the areas of social justice, environmentalism and sustainability, and gender inequality.
Loti believed that it was through daily, mindful, conscious practices like yoga that we could transform our lives and reconnect with our deepest self, each other, and the Earth. She taught that a shift in our daily practices rather than abstract, intellectual ideas, was the key to cultivating an embodied sense of hope that had the power to make changes in the world around us. Loti believed that we become what we practice.
In honor of Loti’s dedication to selfless service, DevaTree School of Yoga has created two yoga training scholarships in her name:
1) The 200-hr Cross-Disciplinary Yoga Teacher Training (basic certification) full course scholarship. One award per year.
2) The 300-hr Advanced Yoga Teacher Training (post-200 hr) scholarship, which provides a 500-hr level Advanced certification. These 300-hrs are taken in 50 and 100- hr modules to equal 300-hrs. One award every two years (applications accepted next for 2021).
This scholarship is open to applicants who demonstrate the following:
