Social Yoga Teacher Training
Social yoga inspires us to let go, trust and be playful in our practice. It gives us the support to be held and the confidence to fly. It adds a deeply healing dimension to your yoga practice through the simple act of bringing people together.
Yoga that makes you happier
The science says we need physical human contact at least 8 times a day for 20 seconds each time minimum to survive, 10 times a day to live normally and 12 times a day to thrive. One thing is for sure, we need more platonic touch than we are getting in our adult lives on average. ‘Skin hunger’ is a thing and it’s showing in the stats – loneliness is as dangerous to our health as smoking. Social yoga is all about creating positive opportunities for human contact, in ways that build trust, collaboration, teamwork, partnership, conscious communication and compassionate listening skills. All the buzz words of the day taken care of with a little stretch between friends – what are you waiting for?
Specialise as a Teacher
This is your chance to offer something unique to your studio, and your community and draw everyone closer together.
Create a culture of collaboration
Bringing communities closer together by working in pairs and groups doing yoga flows, games and poses together on the mat is a huge benefit to team bonding. Social yoga is a fun way of engaging teams and inspiring them to understand each other better and hence work more collaboratively off the mat – all while boosting overall health and wellbeing! It’s a win-win for everyone.
Carve a new path, post #metoo
Feel grounded and inspire safe spaces with our training on consent, touch and boundaries so you can create atmospheres that encourage safe human connection. Build confidence in others and open the door to a new way of communicating from an authentic and empowered place.
Want to join the movement for change and help people bond, trust and grow?
We think loneliness, anxiety and workaholism is fuelled by disconnection. We need to put our phones down and pick our friends up!
This training offers you deeply healing tools and practices to take to your communities that fulfill our fundamental need for human touch and connection. The skills are applicable to workplace wellbeing, mindfulness in schools, conscious relating for couples and ceremonial or celebratory occasions.
Social Yoga is all about supporting healthy relationship building, inspiring trust and collaboration and help us achieve together what we could never do alone. It is about spark a movement for change towards a more connected world.
We are looking for a tribe of teachers who are ready to melt the ice of isolation and transform communities into consciously relating, boundaried, empowered and embodied yoga ninjas. Let us bring the next dimension to yoga practice for every body and make yoga a social experience.
So book a chat with Cat to discuss what inspires you to join the Social Yoga movement for change.
