Become a Teacher
Attend the Unstoppable Training
TBD, October 2018, Bend, OR
The Unstoppable program exists to create a resilient generation of children that use Baptiste Yoga as a life skill.
This is a training for anyone who works with youth - school teachers, school counselors, aides, coaches, community center employees, police officers, etc. You will learn through an embodied experience, a set of tools to teach basic yoga poses, breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques to youth in whatever setting you encounter them in. The training will also give an introduction as to why and how these tools can help people who have experienced trauma. You will be given valuable tools that will teach you to care for yourself first so you can more effectively serve others.
This training will cover how yoga, meditation and self inquiry are powerful tools for your own self care, but also through an embodied experience for yourself, how you can share them with others.
Cost: $99 non refundable processing fee for those currently working with youth (including educators, school counselors, aides, coaches, community center employees, first responders, law enforcement, etc) due one week after registration. For those not currently working with at risk youth, the cost of the training is a $395 donation to the Baptiste Foundation. Scholarships are available for the $50 fee for those currently working with youth. Please contact.
