If you are a yoga teacher, group facilitator, or therapist, this is for you! Come join us to learn about how all trauma is somatic. This workshop will lead you through a body-based, integrated approach on trauma and the ways in which to work with it safely and effectively. Beyond what asanas to teach and how, this approach takes neuroscience and somatic psychology into account, providing participants with tangible tools to use with clients. We will explore how power, privilege, and difference live in the body and how they impact trauma; and what it means to be working with a trauma survivor as a trauma-based educator or specialist. The techniques we cover can be applied in either group or individual work, and can also be applied to you: you will learn about the ways in which to keep yourself resourced and safe during times of challenge, as well as when working with others.
*This workshop is also part of the curriculum for 300-hr YTTs*
