About the event

*Message Jenn at or DM @wakingyoga to receive an invitation to the 200-hour info sessions.*

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. We 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.
