Are you interested in teaching trauma sensitive yoga and mindfulness to people seeking recovery from addiction? Transformation Yoga Project is offering a special training for yoga teachers, social workers and committed yoga practitioners interested in working with people who have been impacted by trauma and/or addiction.

This two day workshop will be led by Mike Huggins, Colleen DeVirgiliis and several guest instructors with experience teaching yoga for recovery. The workshop will reflect their experience leading Yoga and Mindfulness classes in inpatient and outpatient facilities, sober living homes, behavioral health settings and community centers.
