Trauma-Informed Yoga for Healing & Self Regulation – Sold Out!

November 15, 2017 - 9:00am to 4:00 pm

This training couples a somatic (body-based) with a cognitive approach to recovery and provides a foundation for a resilient, embodied response to toxic stress and vicarious trauma.

You will gain a greater understanding of toxic stress/trauma and how it impacts the mind and body. We will provide tools from the growing research into trauma, yoga, and mindfulness to manage and even resolve symptoms of trauma, such as anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship stress, and health issues.

You do not need to be a certified yoga instructor to benefit from this training!

This training will cover:

  • The many types of trauma, including intergenerational and historical trauma
  • How the stress response impacts the brain and nervous system
  • How our story shows up in our body and body memory
  • Somatic therapy tools for discharge, embodiment, and resourcing
  • Breath work and regulation
  • Yoga, breathing, and mindfulness techniques to support greater self-regulation
  • Fundamentals of trauma-informed practice
  • Insights for instruction and sequencing
  • How to offer Yoga for Trauma Recovery classes within the community, treatment, and studio settings
