Created to empower qualified yoga teachers with the skills to build trauma-informed and strengths focused classes in order to reach individuals who may be facing multiple barriers in their lives, such as violence, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions, mental health challenges, and incarceration.

This training is valuable to teachers who work within all settings. You will learn how to make your classes much more accessible to your students by removing barriers you may not even realize were there.

We have used our 20+ years of experience in providing trauma-informed yoga programs across BC to create this training with the goal of increasing the access to supportive yoga programs for all individuals. All proceeds from this 18 hour training go right back into providing weekly yoga programs for our most vulnerable community members. Once completed, you will be eligible to become one of our amazing volunteers!
