Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training

About Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training

We are proud to host the Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training weekend. This is a training for yoga teachers, clinicians, social workers, medical personnel and/or individuals working with communities with trauma.

This 20-hour, 3-day training, led by Kyra Haglund, LCSW, SEP, E-RYT, is designed to offer a physiological framework of shock and complex trauma and how they manifest in the body and mind. We will give you tools from the growing field of trauma research, yoga, and mindfulness to manage, and even resolve, symptoms of trauma. Our aim is to equip yoga teachers to teach to students with trauma and to offer tools to those working with those with trauma in other capacities.

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

Learning Objectives include:

• Ability to recognize the important role of body-based interventions in trauma recovery
• Understand the body’s neurobiological response to threat and how to restore a sense of safety using mind-body modalities
• Learn specific mindful movement practices and means of integrating them into group and individual therapeutic work that will help clients cultivate greater self- regulation and affect tolerance
• Consider epidemiology of trauma and trauma healing as social justice

Ready to step in? Join Kyra September 28 - 30th.
