Trauma Yoga Training @ Studio B Yoga
This weekend training will give you the knowledge, skills, and practice you need to confidently share trauma sensitive yoga and mindfulness practices with those you serve.
For yoga teachers – learn more about trauma and and how you can make simple adaptions to your offering to make it more accessible to those living with a trauma or stress related disorder.
For therapists, mental health professionals, and trauma caregivers. You do not need to be a yoga teacher to share mindful movement and breath with your clients. Learn a somatic modality that you can use to help clients learn to self-regulate and tolerate present moment experience.
- Understand the fundamental principles of yoga and appreciate why yoga is so well suited to address the trauma condition.
- Learn a trauma sensitive yoga framework that can easily be adapted to help you meet the individual needs of the people you work with.
- Learn and practice a trauma sensitive approach to any yoga pose or movement.
- Learn and practice a simple sequence of poses that you can share with your clients.
- Understand what makes a yoga session trauma sensitive and learn and practice how to conduct a safe offering.
- Experience, learn, and practice a number of other techniques you can employ to help clients self-regulate, including Yoga Nidra, a guided relaxation and meditation technique.
- Understand the rationale for, and an approach to, forming and working with small groups.
