Greetings and Happy Autum,
Congratulations to the recent URY Graduates! During a pandemic 21 activists showed up to learn how to be more trauma informed with yoga life skills! Some had to evacuate from the fires. One logged in from Singapore and others will watch the videos to complete their certification. I’m touched, moved and impressed by everyone who made this happen. From the speakers who devoted their time to share their expertise and knowledge to the students ready to bring what they learned back to their communities, I thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Let’s all go forth and bring more love into this world.
So excited about September, lots of important things happening and it's my birthday month! I'm happy to announce that I will be offering an in depth training program for a limited number of participants. This will be online, super fun and informative! To find our more click HERE and I'll reach out to you.
Let me know if you are interested in hosting a URY Trauma Informed Yoga Training Virtually or collaborating to bring classes to your community. Looking forward to connecting with you!
With love and blessings,
Jill Weiss Ippolito, Founder & Director, UpRising Yoga
UpRising Yoga is offering FREE YOGA in THE PARK! with El Centro Del Pueblo. The Summer Night Lights program is a public and private partnership undertaken by the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (“GRYD”) and The GRYD Foundation.
Last year I was invited to Adelaide to meet Joan Davey, the owner of Adelaide Hills Bikram Yoga. She had purchased a copy of our first UpRising Yoga manual in 2012. She welcomed me into her family and we connected in ways of deep friendship as well as simpatico missions. She teaches yoga weekly in the men's prison and it was an honor to join her to see this incredible program thrive!
Our training was memorable and I met passionate students eager to start a movement. Nikius Christou promised he would launch a program along with Joan and I'm so proud of them and their mighty mission.
Let's keep programs like this going and help others to spread a URY movement across the globe!
We Love GRYD & El Centro Del Pueblo!
Happy to announce:
Kath Meadows will be presenting at our upcoming training May 17-19th in Edinburgh at B.E.Hot Yoga

The URY CommUNITY—who, with kindness in their hearts and great ideas in their minds, are ready to roll up their sleeves and offer the UpRising Yoga Model to their communities in their own unique way with Trauma Informed Yoga Services..
Thank you to our beautiful community of ongoing free yoga classes, to the students and teachers and partners...and all the wonderful events, thank you to those who held fundraisers for us and all who participated, we love you!
Not shown are the many private yoga classes and events not open to the public at Central Juvenile Hall, Camp Los Padrinos, Beach High School, and Our House, a teen grief camp where mats were donated by Give Back Yoga Foundation and more!
We offer presentations to service providers and social workers at many group homes and thank you for inviting us to share our work and help to offer the UpRising Yoga Model.
We are raising funds for 10 scholarships to the October 2018 Trauma Informed Yoga Training which is $419 per person. People that are recovering from their own trauma want to give back and help heal others. Often they are not financially in a position to do so- and so many have so much to offer! Please help me help them so they can help others and make the world a better place.
Hello, UpRising Yoga's Trauma Informed Yoga Training is March 2-4, 2018 coming soon! They always sell out so reserve your space.
