In 2012, the UZIT Program launched a new partnership with YogaWorks that will eventually allow us to make the UZIT training accessible to communities throughout the country. YogaWorks’ mission to honor and embrace each student’s search for personal growth, wellbeing and fulfillment is shared by the UZIT Program. The UZIT Program at YogaWorks has been divided into two levels and is now available in Los Angeles.
Level I trainings provide instruction for 100 hours of the 500-hour program, which focuses on self-care and serves as a prerequisite for Level II. Classes typically run for 6 weekends, with one modality pre weekend and integration of all modalities culminating in the last weekend. Opportunities to experience and teach what is learned are given in the training itself and as assignments in between sessions.
The Level II training, which will be available in 2014, will continue the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy training to shift the focus to professional practice in the healthcare community. Level II will be comprised of in-class session, practicums, mentorships with Urban Zen Integrative Therapy teachers, and 100 hours of clinical rotation practice.
