The Kelly Considine Scholarship was established in January 2013 in honor of Kelly Ann Considine who lost her 7-year battle with breast cancer. Kelly was a loving, caring, and beautiful yoga teacher who dedicated her life to helping others. She helped those with cancer grow strong, find courage, and heal through yoga. She dedicated her life to helping others and touched hundreds of lives. Along with The Retreat Project’s founder, Tari Prinster, Kelly also helped develop the yoga4cancer program. Throughout all her struggles, Kelly moved gracefully and remained a warrior. It is in this vein that the Kelly Considine Scholarship was created.
Two different type of scholarship will be awarded based on candidates’ applications that best reflect Kelly’s life:
