Yoga In Action
For Existing Yoga Teachers, Yogis, and Activists
Saturdays April 7th-28th
Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery in the service of others? Join Leslie and Lisa for this four-week program inspired by their Off The Mat, Into The World: Yoga Purpose in Action training. Their experience at Off the Mat was so transformative, they committed to bringing Yoga in Action back to the Columbia community and YOU! This is an opportunity to build community around yoga and service, to develop relationships with other yogis and activists, and to collaborate on creating authentic and lasting change close to home. In this training, with the support of a small group of peers, participants journey from inward witnessing and acceptance to outward purposeful and accountable action within their communities and the outside world. Yoga in Action’s mission is to bridge the gap between yoga, interpersonal transformation, social justice and action by building a network of embodied, inspired, and motivated people, committed to actively serving their communities in a conscious and sustainable way.

One Yoga™ Teacher training provides tools for personal and social transformation. Our focus is on the system of Yoga as an effective and accessible means for integrative health of body, mind, heart, and spirit. This training provides competency in how to teach alignment based hatha yoga classes, breath centered vinyasa classes, yin/restorative yoga classes, breathwork and meditation classes, and the basics for applying yoga therapeutically.
This training is structured such that you may maintain your existing work and family/community life. This structure allows time for the integration of the material as well as the opportunity to engage the yoga practice opportunities that arise in daily life. I have found this method of training to be the most effective at fostering strong practitioners who then have the potential to be excellent instructors.
- To be able to give basic instruction of yoga postures, breath practices, and meditation practices to all levels of student.
