After our volunteers complete the Street Yoga Teacher Training, we partner them with another Street Yoga Teacher in order to team-teach at one of our class locations. This creates an environment of support for teachers, along with consistency and richness for participants. As an additional support for teachers, Julie Sage-Lauck, our Program Director, launched our first ever Weekly Teacher Community Meetings every Tuesday at 6pm. Additionally, we partner with experts in fields related to our work, whether that is trauma-informed research, kids yoga, non-violent communication, etc., in order to provide continuing education opportunities for our volunteers.
Street Yoga Teacher’s Community Meeting: 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
WHERE:Street Yoga Office – East Bank Commerce Center, 1001 SE Water Ave., Portland, OR 97214 – Office #300
WHAT ISN’T IT? This group is not mandatory, it’s not public (only Street Yoga teachers may attend), it’s not a task group or committee. Street Yoga staff may also attend, but in the role of teachers.
WHY? Street Yoga aims to provide support and community for our teachers in a safe, consistent, and accessible way.
