Trauma-Informed YTT: Trauma, Somatics & Psychology

May 24 @ 6:00 pm - May 31 @ 8:30 pm

Trauma, Somatics & Psychology with Marissa Nasca, LCSW

This module explores the intersection between the ancient practice of yoga and the Western-based somatic approach to understanding and healing trauma. You’ll learn the myriad ways that the body holds and releases stories of the past. Building on that understanding, you will learn important ethical principles of teaching trauma-informed yoga. This includes the different settings and professions that are a part of this work, how to incorporate Trauma, Somatics, and Psychology as a yoga teacher, and the importance of setting boundaries when working in this field. This module includes a range of practices, including meditation, visualization, journaling, and somatic experiencing exercises.
