About the Street Yoga Teacher Training
This program is approved by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and Yoga Alliance for 14 hours of Continuing Education Units. Our Core Teacher training will focus on teaching the skills needed to serve youth with yoga, meditation and other mindfulness practices. In this training, you will receive practical, real world knowledge and techniques that will assist you in teaching at-risk youth. You will also be encouraged to dig into your personal experience in order to draw out your own courage and compassion as a teacher.
Street Yoga does not prescribe a strict methodology for bringing yoga to youth. Instead, we will cover the basic techniques we
have found most useful and will present a brief sketch of the challenges faced by these young people. You can expect to learn:
• Population characteristics and backgrounds
• Communication techniques, including conflict prevention and de-escalation
• Useful yoga postures and sequences, including ideas for special populations
• Common challenges to creating and maintaining a yoga program for youth
• How to work effectively with organizations and use resources efficiently

About the Instructors
Street Yoga trainings will be led by Mark Lilly, Director and Founder of Street Yoga, and Katie Arrants. Mark and Katie come to trainees with over a decade of experience teaching yoga. They have also received training in a wide variety of mindfulness disciplines, including yoga, meditation, and "non violent communication." Both Mark and Katie have worked intensively with homeless and at-risk youth and hold dearly the belief that sharing yoga with marginalized populations is a key step in the journey toward a more peaceful, egalitarian society.
