Waking Yoga is a foundational 200-hour yoga training that fosters inclusion, self-authority, and body positivity.
We are a collaborative of seasoned yoga educators, therapists, and community activists who believe that yoga can be a powerful tool for personal healing and liberation as well as for the healing and liberation of society.
Our vision is to nurture trauma-informed yoga teachers who are active in their communities and beyond, guiding them to work mindfully with privilege and oppression and understand the nuances of their students’ races, genders, sexual orientations, bodies, and overall lived experiences as deep sources of individual and collective wisdom.
We will support you through four months of self-inquiry, yoga, and evidence-based mindfulness and somatic practices that will lead you deeper into self-knowledge and enrich your work in the world. In doing so, we will safely yet honestly explore raw conversations about our relationships with society, ourselves, and each other.
This training is an opportunity to make your healing and growth as a human your priority for four months. This experience will leave you more awakened to the world within you and the world around you.
This training is for...
Beginning to intermediate yoga practitioners who want to strengthen their practice and intermediate to advanced yoga practitioners who want to deepen their practice
Yoga practitioners who want to use yoga and mindfulness as a tool for well-being and stress management as well as for trauma resolution and resilience
Mental health clinicians who want to incorporate somatic work into their practice
Yoga practitioners who want a foundation for a yoga therapy program
Yoga practitioners who want a foundation for conscious service work and activism
Anyone who wants to create inclusive yoga classes and communities
Anyone who wants to offer yoga in under-resourced communities who have not yet had access to wellness programs
Anyone in the helping professions who wants to work more consciously and sustainably
Anyone wanting to better understand themselves, society, and their humanity through the teaching and practice of yoga
