Trauma-Informed: Understanding Childhood Trauma with Alexandra Rossi 

Initially, this module will give you a broader understanding of how children and adolescents experience trauma, and how to work with them in a positive, trauma-informed way. Beyond that, you will gain a deeper understanding of how childhood trauma affects adults, how remnants of one’s childhood trauma might show up in a yoga class.

Finally, you will learn how to create an environment that helps adults to find self-compassionate and work to heal themselves. Similarly, Alexandra will guide you through trauma-informed teaching techniques specifically for children and teens. These include intentional breathing practices, somatic experiencing, tapping and drumming, and mindfulness.
