Your Turn To Serve
3-Day Teacher Training
Before our volunteer instructors are cleared to teach on installations, they are required to successfully complete our proprietary teacher training.
Joined Forces Yoga™ Teacher Training is a 3 day workshop (YA CEU eligible) that equips instructors to operate within our military communities and teach in a way that is most effective for our active duty students. During the training, we focus on yoga for strength building, resiliency, vitality, and stress reduction as well as anatomy and assisting.
Pre-Requisite: 200hr RYT or with approval
Intro To Assisting
Our most popular workshop, assisting is a combination art and science that is incorporated into all JFY classes. Assisting active military differs from assisting in a yoga studio setting and all JFY instructors and assistants must complete this training prior to volunteering.
During this 4 hour workshop, participants learn the purpose and value of assists as well as how to stack joints and deliver powerful hands on assists. We dive into the most common challenges for assistants dealing with military populations and practice assisting techniques so that everyone leaves with experience delivery each assist.
Joined Forces Yoga™ also offers this workshop for studios looking to enhance assists or introduce assistants into their scheduled classes.
Pre-Requisite: Strong yoga practice preferred
