Introduction to Trauma for Yogis

Learning about trauma and the biological, physiological, psycho-emotional, and social impact it plays is every bit as important as learning about anatomy for a yoga teacher. Like anatomy, understanding trauma gives the yoga teacher a better understanding of what is going on underneath the skin.

This three-hour introduction to trauma is specifically geared toward yoga teachers and teachers in training. Attendees will learn the definition of trauma, the impact trauma has on the body and mind, and practical application of this knowledge to create a trauma-aware environment on the mat.
