Trauma Core 2: Yoga, Trauma, & Healing

September 1, 2018 - September 2, 2018

with Sean Feit Oakes and Karen Macklin

Theory and Practice of Trauma-Informed Yoga

Many people come to yoga to help heal old wounds, both physical and emotional. In this workshop we will dive in deeper to help support students who have been affected by past trauma.

In this two-day teacher training, you will learn how the nervous system responds to stress and danger, and how that natural response is affected by trauma, often leading to states of anxiety and overwhelm..

We will explore specific yoga and meditation practices that can support healing and resilience. By the end of this training you will be able to create a trauma-sensitive yoga class that is appropriate for the general public and safe for students who are trauma survivors.

This training is a required element of YGSF’s offerings in our new Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Certificate program. For more info, please learn more HERE.

**Core Module 1 & Core Module 2 can be taken in any order**
