Join FireFlex Founder Shannon McQuaide for a 3-day training near Sacramento, CA February 2-4, 2024. This one-of-a-kind training is for yoga teachers who want to learn how to deliver yoga to first responders in their communities. Anyone who wants to experience a yoga program created specifically for first responders is invited to attend. All levels are welcome. Prior certification isn’t required and teachers with 200-hr certification can earn 12 CEC with Yoga Alliance.
Without proactive interventions, like yoga, first responders and their families are vulnerable to traumatic stress disorders, compassion fatigue, and maladaptive coping strategies. Through FireFlex Yoga, first responders are learning how to strengthen their bodies, regulate their stress response and increase physical, mental, and emotional resiliency.
Upon successful completion of the training (17 hours), reading assignment (2 hours), and the take home exam (1 hour), Yoga Teachers with a 200-hour certification can apply to receive 12 CEC Yoga Alliance contact hours.
All attendees will receive a Training Manual that includes several step-by-step sequences for leading first responder yoga classes. You’ll also receive a copy of Shannon’s book The Conscious Warrior, and an electronic toolkit with breathing practices, meditations and video of five FireFlex Yoga classes to support your practice and teaching.
