Intersections Wellness, LLC Presents: 

Trauma Informed Foundation ~ Basic & Practicum 

As we enter an era of increased awareness around assault, emotional abuse and predatory behavior, trauma-informed yoga instruction and mindfulness practices are taking on new significance. In this workshop and practicum, yoga teachers, therapists, social workers and other wellness professionals will gain a deeper understanding of how the effects of trauma may show up in classes or one-on-one sessions and the tools they can use to support the situation.

April 13, 2018 ~ Ahimsa: Trauma-Informed Basics ~ 6:00 - 8:30pm

This workshop will provide introductory information about the prevalence and impact of trauma, and how yoga can help to heal or further harm a yoga student who has been impacted by trauma.

April 14, 2018 ~ Trauma Foundations Practicum ~ 12:30 - 5:30pm

This practicum will build on pre-requisite trauma informed trainings. Participants will learn and practice a sampling of trauma-informed mindfulness techniques and yoga teaching skills. This practicum will also include: understanding how the nervous system and the brain are impacted; managing hyper- and hypo-arousal states, learning how to better attune the student/client’s nervous system; offering appropriate modifications in a yoga setting; learning trauma-informed tips for restorative practices. We will close the training with a practice of yoga nidra (yoga sleep). Curated discussion will be included.
