Interested in learning about how trauma affects the mind & body?

Exhale to Inhale teaches its own methodology specific to trauma-informed yoga.  As a yoga teacher, have you had a student’s trauma triggered during your class? Get the resources and tools you need to act appropriately when this happens.

See below for upcoming trainings or request one at your local studio.

Exhale to Inhale Trauma-Informed Teacher Trainings are scheduled throughout the year. They typically include 15 hours of lecture/experiential learning, a training manual, on-line community for sharing & networking, and access to videos / audio for continuing education. Students will gain tangible trauma-informed yoga tools, learning how to modify yoga to make it more sensitive to those who have experienced trauma, and inclusive to all communities.

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.

I left with very tangible tools to work with my clients. My concerns and worries were addressed.

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.

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.

It has opened up my eyes to a entirely different approach to yoga, and how it can heal our bodies and minds.

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.

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”

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.
