Is this training right for me?
If you are interested in learning how to share yoga and mindfulness practices with populations who have experienced trauma, this training is for you! Street Yoga’s 3-day Trauma-Informed Yoga Training is an introduction into the field of yoga service, to the ways trauma resides in the body, and to the ways in which we can use the yoga practice to build resilience. See the Training Overview page for more information on what to expect.
Do I need to be a certified yoga instructor to attend this training?
No! Yoga teachers, as well as social workers, counselors, school teachers, and other service professionals who want to learn more about working with youth facing adversity will find this training valuable to their work. We do recommend 20 hours of experience practicing yoga (asana, pranayama, meditation, etc.) so that you begin the training with a basic, foundational knowledge of the yoga practice. These 20 hours can be any combination of studio classes, home practice with a book or video, or individual instruction.
Can I become a Street Yoga volunteer teacher after the training?
If you are located in the Seattle area or Puget Sound Region, then yes! Click HERE to learn more.
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes, Street Yoga strives to make this training as accessible as possible, and we offer a limited number of scholarships for those who wish to attend the training but may not have adequate financial resources to do so. Please apply using our Live Your Why form. Scholarship recipients will be notified two to three weeks prior to the training.
We also offer a Community Partnership scholarship to an organization that partners with Street Yoga to assist with community outreach and promotion prior to the training. For more information email Carly (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
If you wish to make a contribution to our scholarship fund, you may do so through our donations page.
Do you offer group discounts?
Yes! Groups of five or more are eligible for a discounted rate. Please email Carly (email@example.com) for more information.
Do you offer CEUs?
Yes! We currently offer 16 hours of Continuing Education through Yoga Alliance.
Do you offer continuing education after the training?
We have quarterly gatherings of Street Yoga graduates in Seattle. Street Yoga invites a guest speaker to share their experience with our graduates, usually in the field of trauma-informed yoga, self-care for those working in trauma, or any other related topic. Anyone who has attended a training is welcome.
What if I can’t attend the whole training?
You are welcome to register even if you cannot attend part of the training. However, if you intend to miss more than half of the training, we encourage you to consider attending the training at another time. Please contact Carly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will connect you with the trainer so you can work together to make a plan to cover any content that you will miss. If you miss more than 2 hours of the training, we cannot award you a certificate of completion.
I already registered for a training but can’t make it, can I use my payment for another training at a later date?
Yes! Please email Carly (email@example.com) with the date that you made your payment, along with the future training that you would like to attend instead.
