Join Taylor Wray for a weekend of exploring and learning the foundations of trauma-informed yoga.
September 26-27, 2020
I believe every yoga teacher should have an understanding of trauma and how it impacts the mind and body. Every single person has experienced some form of trauma in their life...which means your students show up to yoga (knowingly or unknowingly) with trauma, PTSD or stress. Understanding how to teach yoga with a trauma-informed lens can only help you to better serve your students, clients and community.
This training is for any yoga instructor interested in understanding trauma-informed yoga and wants to create a safe space for students and clients.
In this experiential online training, yoga teachers will learn the essential principles and practices of trauma-informed yoga, including:
The nervous system and how trauma affects brain, mind and body
- Symptoms of trauma in the mind and body
- Spiritual bypassing
- Different types of trauma
- Somatic and mindfulness based practices and tools for resourcing and self-regulation
- Trauma-informed language and cues that are inclusive to everyBODY
- How to teach yoga to special populations like: sexual assault survivors, domestic abuse, incarcerated individuals, addiction and eating disorder recovery, veterans, illness and chronic pain and at risk youth.
- Sequencing a trauma informed class
- Creating a safe space and setting for your students and clients
- How to reduce harm in the wellness/yoga community
- Benefits and how to teach the general population with a trauma informed lens; i.e. public classes in studio settings and students who are not necessarily experiencing trauma, but are experiencing daily stress
This weekend immersion is held online over Zoom and will require you have access to use your video and audio, a good internet connection and a quiet space for you to be in.
