Description

CoCo is BACK in Detroit after continual sold-out trainings!

This certification workshop, taught by Connection Coalition's Jennifer Cousineau 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
4 types of students
Showing up and speaking authentically
Appropriate touch
Classroom sequencing, lesson plans, and practice teaching
Privilege and access

The Connection Coalition (aka CoCo) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit which offers programming throughout the country. As of 2018, CoCo has connected with over 17,000 kids and trained more than 3,200 volunteer teachers across the US! CoCo is always seeking emerging leaders in existing and new markets who share the desire to collaborate with youth organizations in order to bring access to yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Certified yoga teachers are welcome as well as yoga lovers who want to connect (yoga teacher certification is NOT required to join our team for volunteer programming)
