I think every yoga teacher needs to have an understanding of how to hold space for someone who has experienced trauma because they can be in any class.
I have walked away continuing to talk about the neuroscience and the body’s response to an exhale vs an inhale. I am still processing and feel like I will be working through this training for many years to come. I am so grateful. Thank you”
About the “brain information” … I know it’s out there but ETI does a great job of connecting it to the reason why we practice this type of yoga.
It has opened up my eyes to a entirely different approach to yoga, and how it can heal our bodies and minds.
Thank you for a fantastic teacher training weekend! I really enjoyed the experience. I wish to express kudos for bringing us together as a community, creating a safe space for us to be open and vulnerable, and for delivering high quality instruction. The class you led us through helped me understand how a trauma-informed yoga class matters – I could feel the difference.
The way in which the training was facilitated was seamless. The way in which it seeped into me was magical I loved the intentional way in which community and safety was prioritized during the training, mirroring a trauma informed yoga class. I also loved how the nuance and complexity of trauma and trauma informed yoga was not shied away from.
I left with very tangible tools to work with my clients. My concerns and worries were addressed.
I came in with some basic background on trauma informed yoga, so was unsure about how much new information I would learn. I ended up learning more than I ever imagined and came out inspired, touched, and with a more nuanced and deep understanding of trauma informed yoga than I thought possible.
Amazing experience full of understanding and compassion
