Yoga for Mental Health Certification Program

12-Hour Teacher Training Course
(Theory + Practice + Instruction)

We offer a specialized Yoga for Mental Health Certification for yoga instructors who have completed their 200-Hour training and health professionals interested in bringing awareness to mental health in their profession. Classes include yoga philosophy & theory, understanding how to include the theory into practice, and the demonstration of instruction and queues throughout the practice to illustrate techniques used in a classroom setting. All discussions will be based on current research and examples will be given on how to bridge the gap between yoga theory and practice with the mental health healing practices.

Community Classes:
Yoga for Mental Health Series

1-2 Hour Classes
(Practice + Instruction)

We offer a Yoga for Mental Health Series to the community to help bring mental health into our yoga practice and into our daily lives. Each class starts by introducing an element of yoga as it relates to mental health. The instructor then integrates that element or theme into the yoga class to help participants be mindful of how it's used in practice. Through this approach, participants will learn different asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing exercises) and other tools helpful in their own yoga practice as they face different areas of mental health.
