Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training

The Foundations | 20 hour training

Who can attend the training?

The Trauma- Informed Yoga Training – Foundations 20hr Module is open to people of all levels and all backgrounds; you do not need any specific training prior to attending,although we strongly recommend having a current yoga practice. We believe this training will be most helpful for yoga teachers, social workers, therapists, health care professionals, educators, community service personnel, and activists looking for tools to support sustainable healing from trauma and chronic stress.

What will I learn?

The Foundations Module of the TIY training provides an integrative framework for understanding how complex trauma and chronic stress impact the body and mind. The Module focuses on the ancient practices of yoga and somatic meditation and their ability to reduce Post Traumatic Stress symptoms and increase a greater sense of well-being.

This training will equip you with relevant theory, tools, and in-person practice to better support trauma survivors as they befriend their bodies and reclaim a sense of safety and empowerment in their lives.

What does The Foundational Module cover?

The Foundational Module covers:

● The autonomic nervous system & stress response
● The Polyvagal theory
● Overview of Attachment theory
● Somatic therapy tools for resourcing*
● Yoga practices & somatic meditations for greater self-regulation
● Trauma-informed language and cueing
● Cultivating inclusivity
● Practice teaching
● Yoga and trauma-healing as social justice

Ingrained in all of the TIY trainings is the understanding that systemic patterns of trauma, privilege, marginalization and oppression (such as poverty, racism, ableism, and homophobia among others) must be addressed in order to cultivate healing for all individuals. This philosophy runs through each training and is unpacked at depth in a separate module.
