Our mission is simple. We are taking yoga where it isn’t. All of our training programs strive to make yoga a YES for every body, and now you can help with our mission by learning to teach yoga in the criminal justice system.
Since 2017, Yoga Assets has been leading 200 Hour Yoga Certificate programs for the men and women in the Utah State Prison. We have just graduated the first 500 Hour teacher, and she is now in training to facilitate her own programs on the inside. We believe in the ripple effect.
In this weekend training, Denise Druce, school director for Yoga Assets, and founder of Yoga Forward, a 501(c)(3) will share with you not only how to’s, but also the philosophical, anatomical and ethical considerations around taking yoga to our friends who are incarcerated. Our sincere hope is that you will leave transformed, and in turn, inspired to help create more opportunities for yogis behind bars.
Join us, in person or virtually. This program will be offered as a “hybrid” providing the choice for how you’d like to attend. Our in-person training will be held at the beautiful Eighteenth Element Yoga in Colorado Springs, CO. Virtual students will connect through Zoom. 25 Yoga Alliance CEUs will be provided, along with a certificate of completion and course manual.
