Interested in teaching yoga? Keen to be in the community and interested in yoga but have never done it before? Completed a yoga training course and wish to help us?
Now working alongside SevaUnite Africa we help train anyone who is interested in getting involved.
We supply you with links to PDF files and sound recordings that are useful resources to help you understand and develop your teaching around the methods, pace, style and emphasis used in SevaUnite and Yoga education in prisons Trust community yoga projects. If you are teaching in our Prison Freedom Project it is advisable to go through the correspondence course to familiarize yourself with the content as you may field questions about the theory and practices within. The sound recordings are a great audio aid. We highly recommend using the Seva Yoga manual to help develop and use your service as a means of personal growth and transformation.
