Give Yoga, Get Yoga
ALIY and Dharma Project are pleased to announce a yoga teacher training program that can be paid with yoga service. Hour for hour. The number of hours you train for are the number of hours you offer to teach in the community and at All Life is Yoga. The Dharma Project has partnered with many community based organizations that are doing powerful work to support the wellbeing of ALL Atlanta residents. This program will allow teachers to provide their work in communities that have little to no exposure to yoga.

The Dharma Project is committed to developing a more inclusive yoga community for Atlanta. The current demographic that yoga serves is 75% white women. Many people do not consider yoga as something for them. When people see themselves represented in the leadership, they are more likely to participate. Therefore, this training opportunity will give priority to people of color, men those that want to share yoga with varying body sizes and those who have a financial barrier to participate in a teacher training course.
