Trauma Informed Yoga Training Announcement
from Jill Weiss Ippolito
Host: DR. CONNIE CORLEY
Special Announcement from JILL WEISS IPPOLITO
Jill experienced the healing power of yoga firsthand. She became a yoga teacher so she could pass that power along to others who needed it. In 2011, she founded UpRising Yoga (URY) and began teaching weekly yoga life skills in juvenile detention facilities. URY expanded quickly to bring yoga classes to communities with no access to yoga. URY now employs many yoga teachers and offers over 40 free yoga classes a month to diverse populations across Southern California. Jill has educated hundreds of yoga instructors, childcare providers, mental health professionals, and educators through her Trauma Informed Yoga Trainings. These trainings have become part of a mandatory curriculum for probation officers who work with incarcerated youth. She has been on the forefront of the effort to change probation culture from punitive to restorative by being a vocal advocate to reform the juvenile justice system. (See announcement below.)
UpRising Yoga’s public yoga classes are held at SBCC Wilmington Tues & Thurs 9-10am, Zelda Davis on Thurs in Hawthorne 10:30a-11:30p, Long Beach Thursday, Carson Tuesday see full schedule at: www.UpRisingYoga.org
