Campaign by: Farashe Yoga
Farashe Yoga is developing the first Arabic Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum. With this curriculum, we will be able to train teachers from multiple cities, villages, and refugee camps, making such areas sustainable with their own regular teachers.
Yoga is a strong tool to relieve stress, trauma and all related illnesses (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, migraines, depression). In Palestine in particular, healing resources are limited; so, with spreading yoga, we are offering tools that will release trauma and stress so the individuals can be more efficient in their community. The main reasons why we are developing an Arabic Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum are:
- Instead of having to travel miles and miles away to learn yoga in a foreign language, Farashe Yoga Center will Arabize yoga with this initiative in order to make yoga more accessible for the 420 million native Arabic speakers across the globe.
- Due to the lack of Arabic speaking yoga teachers in Palestine, our outreach outside of Ramallah has been limited. By creating a strong Arabic Yoga Teacher Training curriculum, we will be able to train teachers from multiple cities, villages, and refugee camps, making such areas sustainable with their own regular teachers.
We are in the initial steps of starting the first yoga teacher training in Arabic. This first step includes sending five teachers to Sedona that will create the team of teacher trainers, so far we have sent two teachers and we need one more to move to the next step, so we need to send Majdal Sobeh, to take the 300 hour therapeutic yoga teacher training course at 7 Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona. This course will qualify Majdal to join a team of teachers who have taken the training (and future teachers who will take the training) to develop an extensive Arabic yoga teacher training curriculum.
