5 CEUs with Yoga Alliance

20 Hour Workshop

Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider Certification Badge

All of our workshops are Yoga AllianceĀ® certified. Yoga for Social Justice will count for 5 CEUs through Yoga Alliance.

This workshop explores the impact of yoga and how it can be used to serve and benefit the people who need it. It will access yoga through a lens of racial equality and influence as we explore the ancient texts and apply them to the modern world.

This course will also help educate you on how to make the yoga practice accessible to all races, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. As the practice itself has migrated to the Western world, it is imperative to remember the foundations of yoga and how the philosophy has been interpreted over time.
