This workshop does not certify the participant in yoga teaching: To be certified to facilitate a 'stand-alone yoga program' or 'solely yoga intervention' , you require yoga teacher training and repective insurance, however short part-components of yoga can be delivered by other professionals within their specific scope of professional practice. This workshop is also not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Talking about trauma, even in the context of a professional training can be triggering/overwhelming.
