Are you interested in bringing a more trauma informed approach to your teaching or yoga spaces?  Join the movement to make every yoga teacher trauma-informed whether working in a yoga studio or as preparation for working in the community with underserved groups.

This training will run online over 5 weeks and will include a combination of self directed learning and live sessions. There will be a focus on reflective practice, practical skills, interactive discussion and lectures delivered by a variety of experts in the field. 

It will allow you to understand the principles, theory and practice of bringing a more trauma informed approach to your teaching and allow you to consider how yoga can be a practice that can offer people the opportunity to be empowered in their choices. The course will be underpinned and delivered with a social justice lens and will incorporate study of systemic oppression, trauma theory, neuroscience and how we can create safer yoga spaces by developing awareness and understanding of trauma informed practice. 

This training does not provide you with a yoga therapy or trauma therapy certificate or give you the necessary skills to use this title. This will be covered in more detail in the course  

This course is also not intended to be therapeutic for those who have experienced trauma  or to offer space for people to work through their own trauma. Some content may be triggering for some individuals. Please contact [email protected] if you have any concerns or questions.
