Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher Training
November 2-4, 2018
“A trauma-sensitive yoga practice can provide a structured approach that helps foster our internal sense of safety, personal agency, and choice and that cultivates our capacity for self-awareness and self-regulation.”
--David Emerson and Elizabeth Hopper, Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body
Yoga can be a valuable tool to help folks cope with the effects of trauma. But a yoga class can also trigger fear or other unwanted effects in those who live with the impact of trauma.
Are you a yoga teacher who wants to be more trauma informed in your approach to offering yoga classes? This 25-hour training with PTSD yoga educator Tiffany Rose will provide an interactive and collaborative approach to learning about making yoga more accessible to those who have experienced trauma. Tiffany has been leading trainings on trauma informed yoga for 5 years and has also shared her wisdom on the topic at forums like the Accessible Yoga Conference in Toronto.
Participants will learn about:
Trauma informed teaching tools such as trauma informed language, physical contact, boundary awareness and how to create a safer and more inclusive environment
The evolution of trauma theory and best practices for working with the people living with the effects of trauma
The basics of the physiology of the nervous system and how it relates to trauma
The Shanti Centre is located very close to a hotel and other amenities. There is free parking on site and our facility is wheelchair accessible. Space is limited so don’t wait to claim your spot! Contact Laura with any questions you might have: firstname.lastname@example.org.
