Trauma Informed Yoga Teaching
25 Hour Training
“My dictionary defines trauma as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. Defined like that, the events which can be considered traumatic are wide-ranging indeed—from what might be considered the stuff of ordinary life such as divorce, illness, accidents, and bereavement to extreme experiences of war, torture, rape, and genocide.
Insofar as we adopt this wide-ranging definition, trauma is the stuff of everyday life.” - Stephen Joseph PHD, Psychology Today.
An estimated 8% of Americans, (24 million), meet the criteria for PTSD (PTSD.org). This means that in a yoga class of 25 students, 2 of them may have PTSD.
Trauma is a part of the human experience. At any given time, we will encounter events that are so overwhelming that they leave a lasting negative effect. Our yoga students are no exception. Trauma informed yoga is a method of teaching that avoids retraumatizing a student, helps the student learn to trust themselves and gives them tools for self regulation.
This training will teach you how to teach trauma informed yoga as well as how to make what you already teach more trauma informed.
