This is a 15-hour Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training designed for therapists who want to bring a somatic focus to their practice using yoga as an integrative tool.
You will learn about the history and philosophical implications that create and sustain yoga's usefulness in clinical contexts.
I will teach you a diverse repertoire of Yoga Tools: mindfulness meditations, mudras, yoga breathing exercises, and yoga poses that have been proven effective for improving overall mental health. You'll learn about yoga psychology and the clinical application of the chakra system.
You will gain an understanding of the Trauma-Informed Yoga Approach and how it differs from other Yogic perspectives. You'll learn how to make your sessions Trauma-Aware.
You will learn when, where, why and how to integrate the Yoga Tools learned into your clinical work and how to engage clients while in the yoga poses.
You will participate in a practicum and case presentation to gain practice in how to teach the Yoga Tools within a therapy setting.
There will be opportunities for consultation and refresher courses upon completion of the training.
And...you will receive 15 CEU's if you are a licensed social worker, professional counselor, or marriage and family therapist!

Talking is important, most of our clients benefit from learning how to express themselves more effectively through words, and much of the work that needs to be done requires that we listen and talk to our clients mindfully. And yet, the body is just as important in therapy. What we experience emotionally, we hold in our nervous systems and our body bears as much of the burden as our minds. For trauma in particular, as it is stored viscerally and visually, the body must be experienced. Yoga offers a gentle and compassionate entryway for body exploration.
Yoga is a practice that is somatic, mindful, and that has an underlying spirit of respect and compassion for self and others. It is these three components combined, I believe, that allow yoga to be such an empowering tool for our clients.
