The Yoga Outreach Certification™ Program Application
Thank you for your interest in the Yoga Outreach Certification™ Program.
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. Students will explore how yoga supports equity, inclusion, and community care within a class, in their daily lives, and in their communities. Built on the foundation of Yoga Outreach’s 25+ years of experience providing classes in social service and community based settings, this is a yoga teacher training like no other.

Yoga Outreach is committed to increasing access to yoga across marginalized communities however we also recognize that there are many barriers to accessing training including but not limited to a lack of diversity and inclusion within yoga in Canada itself. In order to work towards equity we are reserving a minimum of one 100% scholarship spot (more as funds allow) in each training for BIPOC and/or LGBTQ2SIA+ folks. We also encourage those with a diversity of experience including but not limited to ability, mental illness, and/or neurodiversity to apply for scholarship. In order for us to best determine your eligibility please take a moment to let us know how your lived experiences intersect with diversity, equity, and inclusion as you understand it.
