Trauma Informed Yoga & Mindfulness

This is a two part series. Part One: An Introduction and Part Two: Certification Module

As a yoga instructor, therapist, teacher, or anyone who regularly serves others, it is almost certain that you will encounter people who have experienced trauma in their lives. Therefore, it is important to be trauma informed.

Introduction to Trauma Informed Yoga & Mindfulness explores definitions of several types of trauma experienced by children and adults, the basic neuroscience of trauma, signs, symptoms and common misdiagnoses, how to make your classes more trauma-informed and how yoga can be part of the healing process. It includes practical tools presented in both lecture and experiential format.

TRAINING FEEDBACK

“Just taught my first diverse abilities yoga class to a six year old girl on the Autism spectrum that communicates through sign language. Wow, that was completely humbling! I am now hooked on wanting to teach her more! Her caregiver said that the class she attended with me was more than she had ever done and that her listening skills where better than they have ever seen! Thank you for this gift!!!”
