Transformative Life Skills (TLS) Training
Transformative Life Skills (TLS) is a powerful application of mindfulness practices for creating and managing environments for wellness and recovery. It includes yoga, breathing techniques, and meditation, which, when integrated, are effective for creating and managing environments for wellness and recovery. TLS is widely viewed as a cost-effective front-line prevention and intervention strategy for physical and behavioral health, education, and violence prevention.
This training is for anyone. You do not need to be a certified yoga teacher or student of yoga. CEU's are available for mental health professionals and educators.
The training is usually conducted in two 3-hour modules: The first half of the training has an internal focus (on the participant) and the second half has an external focus (application for clients/students/staff).

Bose, PhD, Executive Director of Niroga Institute, develops comprehensive and integrated prevention strategies for building healthy communities, and cost-effective architectures for lasting social transformation.

Feedback from past trainings

as myself. Thanks!"
"I will integrate the material into groups and am also inspired to integrate into my own personal life as well as grounding .....to assist with my own stress and to serve as a role model."
"At our local collaborative meeting, several of the staff that had participated in the TLS training talked about how they have already begun to implement TLS in their workplaces. One transitional living program is implementing TLS every morning at 8:30 for staff and residents... We were truly thrilled with the training."
