50-Hr Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training (TIYTT)

We collaborated with experts in the field of trauma to bring you a comprehensive evidence and inquiry based 50 hr trauma-informed yoga teacher training. This training is for yoga teachers who have completed a minimum of 200 hr YTT with intellectual curiosity regarding the trauma theory. Therapists, clinicians, and trauma workers who have a strong yoga practice will be considered individually. Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis to students with demonstrated need who plan to take the leanings back out into the world and impact underserved or under represented communities.

 

Educational Objectives

Through lecture, self-inquiry, group discussion, practice teaching, and the latest advances in neurobiology; we will investigate trauma theories, trauma informed yoga, and body based healing. After completion of this training you will feel elevated to offer trauma informed yoga classes to a variety of populations.

As a student in this training you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of what trauma is and the impact. Specifically, how traumatized people process information, trauma symptoms, and how trauma impacts sensorimotor processing.
  • Learn how trauma affects children’s proprioception, interception, brain development, emotional regulation, and cognition. Through exploration of A.C.E , complex trauma, and developmental trauma theories, you will be able to articulate the range of adaptation to trauma in early life.
  • Learn tools to support system regulation, body awareness, and communication. These skills will be useful in your own journey as well valuable to integrate in your role as a teacher.
  • Through practicum, you will feel empowered to offer trauma-informed yoga classes with individuals and small groups. You will have tools to weave into your yoga classes creating safer space for your students.
  • Connect with a community of conscious entrepreneurs and yogis living in today's world, who understand that service through yoga can be a form of impacting social justice.
  • We will explore recent advances in neurobiology of trauma, and how trauma-informed yoga can be a body-based tool for those healing trauma.
