YOGA FOR SELF-REGULATION AND TRAUMA: COURSE RECORDING 2020

PURCHASE RECORDING

This training is for yoga teachers who would like to work with individuals or communities with trauma. It is also for clinicians, social workers, medical personnel, or anyone else who would like to integrate basic yoga tools into their work to support greater health and well-being

The goal of a trauma-informed yoga practice is to build resiliency and establish greater self-regulation. It is about feeling safe and at-home in our bodies so that we can feel safe in the world, have good self-esteem, and healthy relationships. Anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship stress, and health issues are often the result of unresolved trauma. A trauma-informed yoga practice is sensitive to the needs of a participant with trauma symptoms and offers them tools to feel safe, empowered, and self-regulated.

Along with addressing individuals, this training will also explore how systemic patterns of trauma, at the heart of social justice issues such as poverty and racism, impact entire communities of people.

This training is for yoga teachers who would like to work with individuals or communities with trauma. It is also for clinicians, social workers, medical personnel, or anyone else who would like to integrate basic yoga tools into their work to support greater health and well-being.
