with Kath Meadows and Whitney Ingram
February 9, 10a-6:00p & February 10, 10:00a-3:00p
In this workshop we invite yoga teachers, therapists, and the curious to explore and learn how trauma lives in the body and how yoga can assist in healing. We will discuss the prevalence of trauma, practice trauma informed yoga, and gain an accessible understanding of the science of trauma and learn how yoga is helping.
For teachers and therapists we will explore trauma informed techniques for growing your sensitivity to make your teachings more inclusive. For people seeking yoga or already practicing, these techniques may give insight to the style of yoga your body may appreciate. In closing we will provide guidance in self care to inspire your personal practice and support those working in the field of trauma and discuss yoga activism.
This 13 Hour workshop is Yoga Alliance approved for CEU’s. We encourage you but not required, prior to the workshop to read Overcoming Trauma through Yoga by David Emerson.
