Inclusion Begins with Teacher Education

Who We Are

We educate and empower fitness professionals and studio staff to become safer, more effective, and inclusive in their offerings. We teach instructors how their language, cues, actions, and even marketing, could unintentionally exclude students from historically marginalized populations. We then give them the skills and knowledge to do better. Research shows when people feel safe, seen, and wanted in fitness spaces they are more likely to return.

Our unique courses are created by fitness professionals who are highly specialized in their areas of study. From learning to create a studio environment that is trauma-informed, to building inclusive spaces across race, gender, and ability, and more, The Driven Yogi is your go-to source for continuing education for fitness professionals.

Studio & Teacher Testimonials

The Driven Yogi’s Trauma Informed Training was an excellent introduction to trauma for our team! The workshop was well organized, interactive, and really clear in presenting its concepts and best practices. I really appreciated the balance between delivering information and providing opportunities for practice applying that information.

I feel more knowledgeable, curious, and rooted in the fundamentals of creating an inclusive yoga space, as well as equipped with the resources to be a true accomplice for underserved and underrepresented communities. Do yourself, your students & yoga studios a favor by investing in these courses.
