*Supporting safety, consent, choice, voice and empowerment for trauma survivors*

Many trauma survivors seek out yoga and meditation to support them in their healing journey. However, without the proper awareness or safeguards in place, these practices can be re-traumatizing and lead to many adverse effects. Focusing on the breath, body or certain intentional movements or positions can trigger postural or procedural memories, emotions or physical sensations that are painful or overwhelming. Some students may find themselves discouraged, upset, or coping by bottling up, overriding or dissociating, reluctant to return.

Trauma shows up in every yoga class - being trauma-informed is an important area of competency for all yoga teachers and yoga teachers in training.

• Explore the neuroscience of trauma, stress and dysregulation
• Find out how yoga, mindfulness and meditation can backfire
• Identify concrete ways to minimize risks
• Integrate new skills and principles into your teaching to adapt and enhance your existing yoga styles
• Learn tools to support your own self-regulation and self-care
• Deepen your ability to maintain boundaries while fostering therapeutic presence for students and clients

Part professional development training and part personal growth workshop, this compassionate and practical East meets West experiential learning opportunity appeals to new and seasoned yoga teachers and mindfulness instructors alike. This training draws from trauma and attachment neuroscience, yoga therapy principles, trauma-informed care principles, and skills from Somatic Experiencing.
