40hr Yoga Teacher Training for vulnerable population (PTSD) with Katherine Marr @ Ottawa Yoga Outreach  

2016

 

With a mission to "Make Yoga Accessible to Everyone" this program is beautifully designed around the Sutras and allows the teacher to be adaptable to all types of populations. I have since worked with caretakers suffering from vicarious trauma as well as refugees and can honestly say that this approach is one all teachers should be trained on.
