Despite tough economic times, donations, volunteerism, and social activism are on the rise. The Kunga Yoga Service Leadership Training is for yoga teachers, students, activists, community leaders, and anyone feeling the call to give back and help others. This training is for those that wish to make a difference but don’t know where to start, and also for seasoned activists needing to refill their cup. The Kunga Yoga Service Leadership Training offers the opportunity to explore the process of leadership development through self-inquiry and transformation, so as to become effective community leaders and outreach facilitators. From this foundation of leadership, and development of a personal purpose and mission statement, participants develop their own service project, and gain the specific “hard skillset” teaching techniques for working with trauma-sensitive and special populations.
