About this Training:
This training is more than an education, it is a transformational learning experience.
A training that will offer you immediate tools, methods and interventions in order to instantaneously cultivate a more trauma informed approach in your current studio, classes, business, organization, and offerings.
A holistic approach to discovering the connections between empowerment and resilience with personal exploration, invitational language, safe space creation, supportive solutions, and facilitating choice making.
Join us to begin the shift from simply offering practices to embodying your special role as a facilitator of restoration, wellness and community building by offering trauma informed yoga to all humans in diverse communities.
What is Trauma-Informed?
Trauma-informed means taking into account past trauma and the resulting coping mechanisms when attempting to understand the behaviors of those we are working alongside. It means bringing empathy and compassion to every interaction and creating a safe and accessible space for all.
During this training participants will learn:
~ How trauma anatomically affects the nervous system
~ How to identify trauma symptoms and trigger responses
~ Tools to promote biological resiliency, self-regulation and resolution
~ Protocol and best practices in the field
~ Invitational language
~ Community building and outreach methods
~ Ahimsa and the importance of self-care
~ How to create a safe space
~Teaching methods for classrooms, yoga studios, healthcare practitioners, etc…
This 20Hr Training is designed for:
~ Experienced, new and novice yoga teachers and yoga business owners hoping to integrate trauma informed and accessible yoga in studio, online and community settings.
~ Health, social, service, and community professionals hoping to integrate yoga, embodied, and mindful somatic practices with a trauma informed approach into their existing practice, organizations, and work.

Equity in Investment – Choosing your tier
We are committed to offering trainings, mentorships and opportunities that are of the highest quality, affordable and accessible while striving to keep equity and mutual exchange at the soul of how we serve.
We recognize that we live in systems of inequity and we strive to find ways of finding balance within this. We feel that the deepest engagement and greatest benefit comes when there is a meaningful mutual exchange.
For these reasons, we offer tiered pricing. There is an invitation to reflect on your access to resources and privilege, the value of this work, what you can genuinely afford, and what you might pay for comparable training programs. By committing to what is truly within your means you make it possible for others to show up within theirs and we are all grateful for this.
