The Yoga Outreach Certification™ Program (YOCP-200) offers participants a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the practices and philosophies of yoga using a trauma-informed, student-centred approach. Taught through a social justice lens, students will explore how yoga supports equity, inclusion, and community care within a class, and out in the world. Built on the foundation of Yoga Outreach’s 20+ years of experience providing classes in social service and community based settings, this is a yoga teacher training like no other.
Is this yoga course for you?
This program may suit you better than a typical yoga teacher training, if you’re interested in:
- tools for personal transformation and social change
- creating more inclusive yoga spaces
- exploring ways to honour the roots of yoga without appropriating
This immersive program is rooted in the concept of Sva-dharma, derived from the Sanskrit root dhr, “sustain, support, uphold.” We believe that each of us has the responsibility to use personal transformation in service of collective transformation. Sva-dharma is one way to use yoga for equity, fairness, inclusion, social justice, and freedom.
