3-Day First Responder Training with FireFlex Yoga
November 3, 2023 — November 5, 2023 | 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM | Sacramento, CA
FireFlex Yoga, a data-driven yoga and wellness program for first responders, announces a 3-day training November 3-5, 2023 in a state-of-the-art fitness facility near Sacramento, CA. This one-of-a-kind training is for first responders and for yoga teachers. First responders will learn how yoga postures correlate to daily on-the-job physical tasks and they’ll learn how to lead customized yoga sequences for their crew at their agency. Yoga teachers can earn continuing education and equip themselves to connect with and deliver yoga to first responders in their communities.
Without proactive interventions, like yoga, first responders and their families are vulnerable to traumatic stress disorders, compassion fatigue, and maladaptive coping strategies. Through FireFlex Yoga, first responders learn how to strengthen their bodies, breath, and attention. Interoceptive mind-body awareness creates stronger resilience and decision-making under pressure.
“After many years delivering weekly yoga classes inside fire stations, and now implementing 3-day trainings across the country to public safety agencies, I hope to empower first responders with impactful wellness tools they can take with them back to their colleagues,” said FireFlex Founder Shannon McQuaide. “My mission is to provide practical resources to help them recoup from stress, reboot, and truly rest with tactical wellness practices for mental and physical health.”
All attendees will receive a manual that includes several step-by-step sequences for leading first responder yoga classes. Attendees will also receive a copy of Shannon’s book The Conscious Warrior, an electronic toolkit with breathing practices, meditations, and video of several FireFlex Yoga class sequences to support future practice and teaching. Upon successful completion of the training (17 hours), reading assignment (2 hours) and the take home exam (1 hour), Yoga Teachers with a 200-hour certification can apply to receive 12 CEC Yoga Alliance contact hours.
