Yoga as a Peace Practice
World peace is a priority of the Black Yoga Teachers Alliance™ (BYTA). Peace is achieved one individual, one family and one community at a time. BYTA saw a need for an intervention based on approaches that are self-healing, culturally relevant, and community-based, to address the traumas resulting from myriad forms of violence that undermine the mental health and physical well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
Yoga As A Peace Practice® (YPP) training is customized to meet the unique needs of the communities that invite us. We offer a training designed to teach contemplative and restorative practices that cultivate resilience, inner peace, and well-being in individuals, families, and communities. It is available to yoga teachers, yoga practitioners, educators, health and wellness professionals and anyone interested in utilizing yoga as a pathway to peace.
