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.
