Yoga for Survivors of Trauma Training

Yoga for Survivors of Trauma Training explores ways we as educators can use breath work, meditation techniques and yoga to help students recover from trauma. Our training program is open to both yoga teachers, licensed mental health care practitioners and anyone who desires to incorporate trauma sensitive yoga into their practice or teachings. Our program is divided into modules that offer students an education on various types of trauma and its aftereffects and how yoga, breathing exercises and mediation when done using trauma sensitive queuing, poses etc… can help trauma survivors heal.

Training is completed in 6 hours with a short break for lunch. All material will be provided. Each participant will receive a certificate upon completion.
