Yoga for Mental Health 100-Hour Professional Teacher Training
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.
