In our own small way….
The training supports the greater welfare of not only the students, but goes on to benefit their friends and students. As a result, the impact of a dedicated yoga practice and supportive community extends far beyond the individual.
We envision a yoga teacher training program where students and teachers co-create a vibrant, living community. Done well, a community maximizes relationships, creates partnerships, fosters creativity and contributes to the greater good.
Consider, have you ever felt motivated to improve upon yourself but were to isolated to make it happen?
Whether it be a lack of discipline or simply not knowing the best way to go about change, it can be hard to grow while alone. Conversely, as a DYU community member, your yoga peers will dramatically support you to live into your highest self. What’s more it is so much easier to make changes; to adjust your diet, lifestyle and priorities to be supportive of your growth. You don’t have to do it all alone.
Over 500 people from many different backgrounds have completed the Denver Yoga Underground’s training. Furthermore, DYU will introduce students to a wide network of graduates and opportunities to teach populations in need. As a result, graduates often go on to teach through our connections with Yoga for the People or Guided by Humanity or similar grassroots organizations. The Denver Yoga Underground is committed to not only serving it’s students, but also the greater community.
Examples of where DYU grads have gone on to teach yoga:
Residential refugee housing, mental health agencies, community/rec centers, seniors, chair yoga, children’s yoga, studios, businesses, schools, the Denver Museum, people in recovery, hospitals, board members for yoga for the people, gyms, become studio owners, classes for people of color, trauma sensitive classes, sheriff’s department, athletic clubs and more….
