Teaching Trauma Informed-Yoga: Translating Principles into Practice
In this workshop we will review foundational concepts in teaching trauma-informed yoga, including trauma treatment theory, yoga philosophy and frameworks to help you meet your students needs while managing vicarious trauma. This workshop addresses the question, "Now what?" and will provide thoughtful application of principles for those who have training or experience in teaching trauma-informed yoga. Participants are encouraged to bring challenging cases and questions to our discussion.
Participants will learn:
- How to apply concepts in trauma theory to teaching yoga, both in classes and private sessions
- How to authentically address challenges teachers face in deciding how best to hold space for traumatized students.
- How to respond to the needs of the student's nervous system
- How to create an inclusive practice when working with students with a variety of emotional needs.
This workshop integrates, self-reflection, discussion and practicum, so students should come prepared to reflect, integrate and apply the information learned in this workshop and over the course of the weekend.
