This training provides you with the tools and understanding necessary to work with those considered “at-risk” due to poverty, violence, marginalization, abuse, neglect and other factors. The majority of these individuals have had significant trauma in their lives, and this training focuses on understanding the physiology of trauma and how it manifests in the body and mind. You will learn to incorporate tools from somatic-based therapy practices into a yoga class to help address symptoms of trauma, such as dissociation, anxiety, chronic dysregulation, depression, and addiction. You will graduate from this training with the understanding and confidence to teach yoga in a trauma informed way.
