Warriors at Ease Level 1 & 2 Training (In-Person)

Guiding Wellness Institute training 2

This training is for:

  • Certified yoga teachers with, at minimum, 200 hours of training
  • Meditation teachers with formal training and/or at least 2 years of dedicated practice and teaching

This combined Level 1 & 2 training will be the most comprehensive offering yet. The training will include unlimited access to the online training materials through Yoga International, the opportunity to participate in a range of Warriors at Ease-style community classes taught by one of the organization’s lead faculty members in a densely populated military community. 

This in-person and immersion-style training will allow students to not only take in the information but also see it put into practice while attending classes taught by a Lead Warriors at Ease Faculty Member.

If you have extensive experience as a teacher but don’t meet the minimum requirements, you may still qualify upon faculty approval. Please contact our registrar at reg@warriorsatease.org.

This five-day intensive involves:

  • Learning material from both Level 1 and Level 2
  • Teacher practicum to demonstrate core competencies
  • Continued self-study and assignments after the in-person component

Those who demonstrate the core competencies of both Level 1 and 2 and complete the self study portion of this training will be prepared to share yoga and/or meditation safely and effectively in military and veteran settings – including clinical and non-clinical environments – and become fully-certified Warriors at Ease Teachers.

 

Prior to earning your Level 2 WAE Teacher Certification, you must not only attend all the training and successfully complete the homework assignments, but you must also submit documentation for the requirements for certification listed below and be approved by the WAE faculty members.
