Thank you for your interest in teaching for Living Yoga! You do not have to be a certified yoga teacher to volunteer with us, however, all Living Yoga volunteer teachers must attend our 17 hour trauma-informed yoga teacher training. This training combines lecture, group work, and practice teaching to prepare you to teach trauma-informed yoga to the populations that Living Yoga serves.

Required Qualifications:

●       Minimum of three years consistent yoga experience

●       Desire to learn how to teach trauma-informed, mindfulness based yoga

●       Ability to commit to volunteering 1-2 times per month for a minimum of one year. (consistency and reliability of teachers is critical to our trauma-informed approach for the students who depend on our services).

Applicants for our teacher training program will be selected based on yoga practice and history, related life or professional experience, availability in relation to our class opportunities, and commitment to service and social justice. 

We are currently accepting applications for our next training, February 8-10, 2019.

The application deadline is December 21, 2018. 

The trainers are supportive, committed and knowledgeable. I can feel the passion and love they all share for this program. It’s an inspiration. I am so grateful.
