You do not need to be a certified Yoga Teacher to attend the training — all are welcome!

Yoga Instructors seeking YA CE credits: Trauma Informed Training with Union Yoga counts towards CE credits with the Yoga Alliance for eligible movement instructors.  Certificates will be issued upon completion.

This training does not certify you as a yoga teacher, but can act as a complement to your current yoga teaching or other therapeutic practice. It offers practical ways that simple therapeutic teachings may be formally taught or facilitated in group settings (within or outside of a yoga studio), or informally lived and shared as life practices with friends, family, and community. 

This training is built on the pillars of a deepened personal practice, Yoga Philosophy, and Subtle Anatomy.
