Trauma Informed Outreach Training says
When people understand the benefits of yoga and the profound impact it has on themselves, they want to teach others. Some people in particular want to take yoga to populations that need it the most but typically don't have access. Imagine prisons, homeless shelters, juvenile detention centers, women's shelters, and more. To teach to these populations, it's less about perfecting that Warrior I and more about connecting with people, teaching them to connect with their own body and breath, and finding peace and calmness where they are surrounding by chaos.

You don't need a 200 hour yoga teacher training to teach to at risk populations, you need a big heart and the right tools to connect with people.

We are blessed to have Yoga Gangsters come back for a second training here in Tampa. Yoga Gangsters will be coming to Tampa for their Level 1 training. This 15-hour certification workshop is taught by Jodi Weiner, Executive Director of Yoga Gangsters Inc. (501c3)

Yoga Gangsters offers free programming throughout the country working within the juvenile justice system, with Title 1 schools, foster youth centers, homeless shelters, drug rehabs, residential facilities, hospitals and other non-profit organizations.
