Why is We RISE Yoga Good For You?
A Word from Our Trainees
The R.I.S.E. Program Includes:
The 20-hour R.I.S.E. Yoga course is suitable for yoga teachers, mental health professionals, counselors, behavioral therapists, or anyone who would like to educate themselves on how trauma or long-term stress can affect the brain and body.
Our expert instructors will introduce students to the core concepts of how the brain and body are both affected by trauma and how it can have lasting effects. R.I.S.E Yoga uses the approach of attending to the needs of the students first, how to apply methods of movement, connecting with breath, and using invitational dialogue to help others heal.
Our instructors provide an in-depth, hands-on training, and give yoga teachers the tools to create trauma-informed classes, and give mental-health clinicians new practices to use with their clients. This course will be offering CEU Credits for all Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, CPC's, and Counselors pending approval.
