Our mentorship/training programs all launch in the Winter of 2018. It’s important to note that our SEI program implemented with yoga in the school requires a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certification. However, our Girls Elevate Sacred Circle Training does not require yoga training although it is highly recommended and encouraged.

If you are not certified in teaching yoga and live in the Bay Area, please see Dana Damara’s yoga teacher training course program outline that begins every Fall and Winter season. If you live outside the Bay Area, please find one that resonates with you and is geographically effective for your participation.

The trainings each encompass 40 hours of training over the course of 4 days, and upon completion, you will obtain an accreditation to lead these courses. The first training will be held in Marin County, California and within 9 months of launch, we will be offering the program online.

Our initial target markets are Northern and Southern California; Denver and Boulder, CO; Seattle, WA; Portland, OR. 

Each program includes lecture, integration, testing, and internship before a program can fully launch utilizing the Youth Elevate/Girls Elevate curriculum. It’s important to recognize the different training programs Youth Elevate offers.

In order to teach the Youth Elevate program in the school system, you must be 200-hour yoga teacher credentialed. If you are not, you may still train for the SEI (Social Emotional Intelligence), and Girls Elevate Leadership Training program.

The quality, integrity and content of this program is of utmost significance. Our dedication to overseeing the sacredness of this organization will be our top priority as we grow and expand. We will remain true to our mission, values and goals as set forth by our board and committee members.

Our intention is for children nationally to have access to our program regardless of sex, race, socieoeconomic status or religion. The same applies for our Girls Elevate program — women globally will have access to creating this same program in their hometowns. Eventually, we will offer an online training over a 9 week series that will require online attendance, Omwork and presentations. To keep travel expenses low, we will offer these women an opportunity to “turn in” a presentation/video of themselves leading a session or program. Additionally, they will be required to attend up to three of our sessions via Skype.

Our National and Global Teachers will be required to maintain their certifications, pay an annual fee to keep their status with us and have unlimited access to top leaders in their field for support, guidance and opportunities.
