The Yoga Outreach Core Training™ - Online Version
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.

Now you can take the training online in an eight week format.
This 8 week online training is comprised of weekly videos, reading, assignments and online interaction. Each week is a new section and will build on the previous weeks learning. The training culminates in a final teaching project which you will film and submit for feedback. Upon completion of the Core Training™ you will be eligible to apply to take our facilitator's course (coming soon) and apply to be licensed to provide the Yoga Outreach Core Training™ in your area.

“It’s inspiring to watch the clients see a program through and move onto next stage, progress, become empowered, centered and strong. To be in savasana without opening their eyes, fully relaxed and still, letting go. The women have become strong before my eyes, and its amazing to be a part of..." - Volunteer Instructor, Addictions Treatment Centre.
