Full Description

This training is valuable to teachers who work within all settings, as most indivuduals have experienced some form of trauma in their lives.

At Yoga Outreach we specialize in providing yoga programs for people overcoming multiple barriers in their lives. Our volunteer teachers are working in mental health and addictions centres, with at-risk youth, and the incarcerated. We have used our 20 years of experience with providing yoga to social service organizations to develop a trauma-sensitive training that will empower you to work with students confronting a wide range of challenges within diverse settings.

The best part is, all proceeds from this 18 hour training go right back into providing supportive yoga programs for our most vulnerable community members, and, once completed, you are elligible to become one of our amazing volunteers!
