In this training, you will understand the complex topic of trauma that is so prevalent in our culture, and how you can help as a yoga teacher. We believe that authentic Yoga is, by definition and intention, inherently trauma sensitive. This day long training will give you the tools you need to become more adept at addressing trauma through your teaching.

In this course you will:

  • Understand trauma, its sources, pathways and triggers from a neurological and developmental perspective.

  • Uncover how sensory processing and neural development influence adaptive or maladaptive responses to stress and trauma

  • Recognize trauma responses in a yoga class and be able to respond appropriately

  • Learn specific trauma sensitive teaching protocols and techniques

  • Apply a model of the subtle (yogic) body in addressing and helping to heal trauma

Upon completion of all course requisites, participants will receive a certificate from the Yoga Vidya School, which can be used to satisfy continuing ed requirements for Yoga Alliance.
