Yoga for Mental Health 100-Hour Professional Teacher Training

The healing benefits of yoga are vast and transformative; yet, the culture of yoga in the western world is catered to the privileged, cis-gendered, white, and neuro-typical.  
Yogic technologies were intended for all, and must be especially available to communities that are marginalized, under-serviced and misunderstood. The capacities to inhabit the body, understand the mind, and heal from within are essential for those experiencing systemic and personal trauma, and can empower one into circumstances that lead to support and success. Therefore, those who have had privilege to practice and teach yoga are also responsible for ensuring that it is available to anyone who needs or desires it.

This 100-hour immersion is intended for yoga teachers who know that it is their responsibility to deepen their education so as to meet all students who might feel called to the practice;  

it is for yoga teachers who feel keen to broaden their teaching from yoga studios into their communities, and yoga teachers who feel called to meet their studio practitioners in a fuller way;  

and it is for anyone who works in a system -- mental health workers, teachers, social workers, healthcare professionals etc -- who would like to bridge their interactions with both physiological and holistic knowledge and support.
