WHAT IS YOGA AS A PEACE PRACTICE?

 

Yoga As A Peace Practice is a curriculum to train certified yoga teachers to offer yoga classes where violence and trauma have had a significant impact on individuals and communities.

 

Rather than a focus on Hatha yoga, this training helps teachers better facilitate an experience of yoga as a contemplative practice that leads participants toward the attainment of balance, hope, harmony, balance, and improved self-awareness to develop lifestyle strategies to create peace in their homes and communities.

 

The Yoga As A Peace Practice training will provide:

  • Specific lessons and class formats for each yoga class
  • Selection and use of themes in music, poetry and readings to help participants learn to cultivate self-awareness and stillness
  • Methodologies in the practices of sharing and releasing
  • Yogic practices to manage feelings of stress, fear, grief and loss
  • Pranayama practices (yogic breathing techniques) for relaxation and meditation
  • Steps to help teachers meet the students where they are
  • Approaches for leading effective share circles
  • Methods to facilitate group reflections
  • Methods to collect anecdotal data from participants on the impact of Yoga As A Peace Practice
