Full Description

A very special and important Yoga Teacher Training is coming to Huntsville, AL this May 15-17th!! It is difficult to find this type of training in the Southeast and it's coming to our backyard!

The Mindful Yoga Therapy program is a clinically tested program, originally developed to help Veterans with PTSD but whose practices (The Toolkit) can also have a profound impact on anyone who has experienced trauma or whomever is going through traumatizing stresses on a daily basis (this is a large number of our students and potential students - a larger number than one would believe).

Sign up DEADLINE is a month prior to the training. We have to have 15 trainees signed up in order to bring the team from Newington, CT. Suzanne Manafort and her team are AMAZING individuals. You will be learning from the BEST! I am personally invested in this because I BELIEVE we can make a difference and make Huntsville (and the Southeast) an even more wonderful community of peace and support than it already is! Please take the time to share and reach out to every yoga teacher you know. The more people we have to train the more money goes towards distributing free materials (books, cds, posters) for The Give Back Yoga Foundation to distribute to Veterans!!
