STAP Subsidy

Get up to 1000 Euro subsidy for your training at Arhanta Yoga (Dutch STAP Budget)

The STAP-Budget has been ended by the Dutch government.

It is no longer available in 2023.
We hope new options become available in 2024.

The information below is only for reference about previous STAP-rounds.

We are proud to announce that Arhanta Yoga has received the NRTO quality mark. Obtaining this quality mark is a recognition of the quality of our products and the professionalism of our services. An independent, external certifying body has tested whether we meet the quality requirements. The NRTO quality mark is issued by the Dutch Council for Training and Education (NRTO), the leading industry association for private trainers.

NRTO Quality Mark
STAP Budget

As a direct result of this quality mark, the courses offered by Arhanta Yoga Netherlands and Arhanta Online Academy are eligible for the Dutch STAP budget.
The STAP budget can be used for a training or education listed in the STAP training register on the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency’s (UWV) 
STAP portal.
Read on to find out if you are eligible for the subsidy and how to get it.

  • You can demonstrate ties with the Dutch labour market, and
  • You cannot apply for other forms of financing for education, such as student finance.

You can apply if

  • You have not been accepted for an earlier STAP Budget in the current calendar year

How to get the STAP Budget for an Arhanta Yoga training?

There are two options to follow courses with the STAP budget:
Option 1: Live at the Ashram in The Netherlands as part of a group.
