Are you a community-focused yoga teacher who wants to positively impact the lives of people who cannot access yoga classes in mainstream settings?
Yogahood Australia's two-day Yoga Outreach Training will equip you with the skills, tools and awareness to work with the wider community in diverse and unpredictable settings, and will expand your toolkit as a yoga teacher.

Discuss potential challenges of teaching yoga in outreach settings and strategies for dealing with them
Help you understand the key differences between teaching yoga in studio and outreach settings
Teach you best practices for sharing yoga with underserved groups in outreach settings

Provide opportunities to teach yoga in the wider community
