30 HOUR

TRAUMA-INFORMED

YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

NEXT TRAINING: APRIL 2021

The WHY:

WE NEED TRAUMA-INFORMED TEACHERS NOW MORE THAN EVER.

 

The more we are learning about trauma, the more we are understanding that it can have a deep impact on the entire body. There have been a strong and growing consensus among healthcare professionals that treatment approaches need to reach beyond talk-based or cognitive therapies. 

 

Research has shown the experience that trauma impacts one’s sense of self and one’s sense of place and purpose in the world. There are also measurable impacts on the body, brain, endocrine system and cellular biology.

This training is an in-depth 30 hour program that will take your teaching and knowledge to the next level and beyond the mat. Combining the worlds of nutrition and yoga, this training also incorporates a unique added element of looking at nutrition and ways you can look at supporting the body through food and natural supplements when working with anxiety and depression.

 

We will not only look at the science behind trauma but ways for you to apply this realistically in your classes and your life. This course extends far beyond the six weeks — this is designed for you and your students to TRANSFORM.
