About The Event

Two in-depth workshops


May 10–13, 2018

This training is designed to teach Trauma Informed Care practices as they apply to teaching public yoga classes. Trauma Informed Yoga Teaching requires cognizance of the consequences of trauma and adversity, as well as the potential for Yoga practitioners to re-experience post-trauma symptoms while practicing Yoga. The focus of this training is creating a safe space, prevention of negative responses to Yoga practice in a public setting, recognition of issues and troubleshooting if such an event occurs. Time is also dedicated to an introduction of Interpersonal neurobiology, neuropsychology as it applies to yoga practices, self-care, and deepening personal practice.

This training is designed to teach the TIYT™ Methodology to Yoga, allied health, and mental health professionals who are presently working with, or interested in working with, clients who suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder (PD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and/or acute cumulative stress; in Yoga Therapy terms, all are fluctuations of the mind (vṛttis). The focus of the training is practical applications of ancient yoga psychology, philosophy and practices as well as the Polyvagal Nerve theory, Somathesis, and other neurophysiological principles. This methodology is currently employed in hospitals, in-patient psychiatric units, addiction recovery programs, schools, healthcare facilities, Yoga studios, and prisons as stand-alone programs and as a complementary modality in an integrative healthcare setting.
