Earn up to 3 graduate-level semester credits (per workshop) with Yoga 4 Classrooms and University of the Pacific, Benerd College. Together, Yoga 4 Classrooms and UOP are proudly committed to helping educators and teachers across the nation, like you, earn graduate-level semester credit for implementing yoga, mindfulness and SEL (MY-SEL) focused strategies that are meaningful and effective, all while meeting educational standards set by your school district or state.

The cost of graduate-level credit is separate from the Yoga 4 Classrooms workshop registration fee. (These are post-baccalaureate professional development semester credits of non-degree graduate level and are not applicable to a degree at University of the Pacific.)
