Teach to Inspire is Missouri's first Non-Profit Yoga Education Center and Yoga Alliance teacher training center offering public classes and a flexible certification program. Their outreach work has become very important to the center and the community.
In the latter part of their 200 hour teacher training students choose an area of focus. They encourage students to choose an under-served area of their community. Teach to Inspire currently has teachers working in addiction recovery, both in an adult and teen program, through the Juvenile court system, English as a second language classes, children with developmental disorders, breast cancer survivors, local public schools, and victims of abuse. Many more programs are being planned. The teachers have taken their certification to work in an orphanage in India, taught bilingual classes in China, and returned to teach in Dublin.
Graduating students are required to spend a year working and growing in their area of special focus, either funded through the sponsoring program or through the foundation. Teach to Inspire conducts fundraising activities and community events. Their board members are all dedicated yogis who fully understand the benefit of their practice on the mat, on the zafu, and on the planet. It is a joy and inspiration to reach lives on so many levels.
YOGAaccessories has been a great partner to provide yoga mats and supplies for our programs and we proudly offer their products to our public class students.
