Trauma-Informed Yoga Training

Street Yoga Comes to Kent!

Sept. 2-4, 2016 (No prior teacher training required)

This weekend training is Street Yoga’s core curriculum. It offers an inspiring and heart-felt introduction to the field of yoga service for youth experiencing life challenges. The densely-packed 14-hour training focuses on a wide-variety of practical, hands-on skills needed to serve youth with yoga and meditation in the real world. Areas for exploration and practice include communicating effectively, maintaining safety in the classroom, promoting healthy boundaries, choosing postures and exercises, handling challenging behaviors and situations, and collaborating with agencies.

A word from Street Yoga’s Founder and our lead trainer, Mark Lilly:

“One of the things we do is work on getting ourselves to see yoga not as 90 minutes on the mat in a studio, but so much more: it could be five minutes in a hallway with one kid, helping her breathe and calm down before she meets a probation officer. It could be working with staff to help them ground and center in their own breathing.

There are so many ways we use yoga in our own lives without realizing it, and a big part of the training is to help you tease out all those glories and find ways to share them with others.”

Applicants are not required to have completed a 200 yoga teacher-training program. However, because our training helps trainees understand how to use and adapt what they already know for the purposes of yoga service, all applicants should have experience with yoga and/or meditation. These hours may include any combination of personal practice, studio classes, and/or individual instruction. We suggest a minimum of 20 hours of yoga before applying.
