Connection Coalition – Trauma Informed Outreach Training
The Connection Coalition (formerly known as Yoga Gangsters) certification is for anyone who would like to provide outreach yoga programming at schools, shelters, rehab facilities, or through other non-profit organizations. Working with these populations requires specific skills and awareness so that you can connect with the youth through yoga while providing messages of empowerment, teaching self respect, self awareness and self control.

This 15-hour certification is taught by Jennifer Cousineau, on behalf of Connection Coalition (501c3). 15 hour credits towards Yoga Alliance Continuing Education.

This course will cover:

  • DIVERSITY
  • Intro to trauma and how it is held in the body
  • 4 types of students
  • Showing up and speaking authentically
  • Appropriate touch
  • Classroom sequencing, lesson plans, & practice teaching
  • Privilege & access
