Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training

A 50-Hour Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program

May 21st to 27th, 2021

Trauma-Informed Yoga is a rapidly growing field based on neuroscience research. It is quickly becoming a necessity for individuals wishing to become more effective yoga teachers, leaders, healers, or trauma recovery, facilitators.

This program is specifically designed for Yoga Teachers (RYT-200 required) or Health Care Providers who wish to broaden their scope of knowledge in the field of Trauma Recovery. This training is for professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of how trauma affects the brain and the nervous system, as well as how to increase awareness and sensitivity when working with trauma survivors. Trainees will learn how trauma lives in the body and the incredible healing potential that is available through embodiment practices and breathwork. After completion of this training, graduates will feel empowered to share Trauma-Informed Yoga classes in their communities and beyond. 

This workshop qualifies for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) with Yoga Alliance for RYTs.

Even though we will be diving deep into our own self-inquiry, this is not a personal therapy intensive.
