What We Provide

Do you serve clients who are deemed marginalized, vulnerable, or at-risk? For over 20 years Yoga Outreach has been partnering with facilities to support yoga programming. We recruit, screen, train, and support volunteer yoga instructors in these settings.
Our volunteers are certified yoga instructors who complete our 18-hour Yoga Outreach Core Training™ and a practicum session with our qualified staff prior to placement in any service yoga setting. In addition to specific yoga teaching techniques, our training also discusses best practices for various service yoga settings, and an introduction to the challenges clients may be facing.
We also provide ongoing support to volunteers and facility staff to maintain the highest quality yoga programs for your clients.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.

We process new applications on a monthly basis, and will be in touch with you about your application as soon as we can.
