Event description

Description

This certification workshop, taught by Connection Coalition's Marisol Tamez is for anyone who would like to provide outreach yoga programming at schools, shelters, rehab facilities, or through other nonprofit organizations. Working with these populations requires specific skills and awareness so that you can connect with the youth through yoga while providing messages of empowerment, teaching self-respect, self-awareness, and self-control.

This 15-hour course will cover:

  • Diversity

  • Intro to trauma and how it is held in the body

  • Four types of students

  • Showing up and speaking authentically

  • Appropriate touch

  • Classroom sequencing, lesson plans, and practice teaching

  • Privilege and access
