This 5-session online course will offer a foundational overview of a trauma informed framework for healing and nervous system regulation. The goal of a trauma-informed practice is to build resiliency and support self-regulation. It is about feeling safe and at-home in our bodies so that we can feel safer in the world, feel integrated, and have healthy relationships.

Anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship stress, and health issues are often the result of unresolved trauma. A trauma-informed approach is sensitive to the needs of a participant with trauma symptoms and offers them tools to feel safe, empowered, and self-regulated. For clinicians or people who are not teaching yoga, there are simple body-based practices that are easy to teach that can support the people you are working with to regulate trauma symptoms and feel more grounded in their bodies again.

Along with addressing individuals, this workshop will also explore how systemic patterns of trauma, at the heart of social justice issues such as poverty and racism, are traumatic and impact entire communities of people.

This training is for yoga teachers who would like to work with individuals or communities with trauma. It is also for clinicians, social workers, direct service providers, medical personnel, or anyone else who would like to integrate basic yoga and somatic tools into their work to support greater health and well-being.
