The holistic healing that comes from a regular yoga practice can be profound. Subsequently, the body of research in the yoga arena continued to grow exponentially; the field is now looking at yoga as a therapeutic modality and yoga in our communities. Accordingly, the most dedicated yoga teachers and healthcare professionals need additional trauma-based training, or resilience training, to adequately serve within these areas. Thus, Jai Yoga Integrative Therapy and Yoga2Sleep have collaborated to offer a comprehensive Resilience Yoga Therapy Training for Yoga Teachers like no other. Understanding Trauma: Yoga for Recovery, Restoration, Reintegration, Resilience is the result of this collaborative effort and will broadly cover aspects of trauma with its basic understanding, along with how to work with and approach affected populations.
This 18-hour training program is for yoga teachers, health and wellness practitioners and healthcare professionals. Participants will need a foundation in yoga. Yoga Alliance continuing education credits are available.
The Resilience Yoga Therapy Training for Yoga Teachers will cover:
- PTSD (including combat trauma, secondary, intergenerational PTSD)
- sexual trauma (including MST)
- moral injury
- childhood trauma
- sexual trauma
- terrorism/community violence
- domestic violence
