Questions about training
Do I have to be a certified yoga teacher to attend the T.R.Y. 20 hour workshop?
No! We invite all members of the community to attend our workshop if they might benefit from it. We’ve had yoga teachers, school teachers, therapists, counselors, people who have experienced trauma directly, and so many more.
When is the next T.R.Y. 20 hour training?
Please visit our Calendar page for information on upcoming events.
How can I become a teacher for T.R.Y.?
If you are at least a 200RYT and have a TRY certification you can sign up to teach our adult clients by contacting us and asking for more information. If you do not have a 200RYT but have the TRY certification and have practiced the at-risk youth sequence, you can join our mission to teach at our schools. Contact us for more information.
Will I be certified to teach yoga after the T.R.Y. 20 hour workshop?
To teach to the full TRY sequence, you would need to also have a 200RYT, but you can teach the at-risk youth sequence without a 200RYT.

How can I bring your T.R.Y. 20 workshop to my city?
T.R.Y. will travel! If you are interested in bringing our training to your city, we can cooperate with you to do just that. We would need your assistance as the host in your community and if all goes well, your training could be free! Here is what that looks like:
- Host required to find and secure a low-cost space to accommodate our 3-day training (enough open space to accommodate 30 yoga mats with working baths, air or heat depending on season) T.R.Y. will work with space directly to negotiate payment details. T.R.Y. pays an average 20% of the total enrollments to space.
- Host works with T.R.Y. to fill the training at 400.00 per participant, minimum of 20 enrolled 1 week before the training for T.R.Y. commit to coming. T.R.Y. will provide social media ads and send host flyers to print and promote at local business and yoga studios.
- Host will help T.R.Y. to understand your community, common trauma, social issues, for example in Las Vegas, we have homeless vets, infidelity, drug addiction and the recent mass violence to consider.
We have held workshops all over the United States. To learn more information on bringing T.R.Y. to your community, please Contact us.
