Mental Health Aware Yoga is a cutting edge, professional development training program for Yoga Teachers developed by Clinical Psychologist and Senior Yoga Teacher Dr Lauren Tober.

In this training program you’ll develop your skills to deeply support your yoga students experiencing mental health challenges, including depression, anxiety, trauma and stress.


You'll learn the six pillars of Mental Health Aware Yoga, including:

  1. Knowledge of Western Psychology
  2. Understanding Yoga Psychology
  3. Creating a Safe Container
  4. Cultivating Therapeutic Skills
  5. Evidence-based Yogic Practices
  6. What to do in a Mental Health Crisis

Knowing how to best support your yoga students with mental health challenges is a must for all Yoga Teachers.


Dr Lauren Tober is a Clinical Psychologist, Life Coach and Senior Yoga Teacher based in Mullumbimby, Australia.

With a passion for health, healing, happiness and awakening Lauren integrates the best of western psychology with ancient yogic wisdom, both on and off the mat.

Lauren is the founder of the Centre for Mind Body Wellness and Capturing Gratitude (a global photographic happiness project) and is the creator of several acclaimed online courses, including Meditation Pure + Simple, Living Your Heartfelt Desires and A Daily Dose of Bliss.

Her work is soulful without being new-agey.  It's evidence based, without being clinical.  It's authentic, heartfelt and life changing.
