Whether you are working on your own healing or looking to help others, Yoga for Wellness will revolutionize how you both understand, teach and practice Yoga. Leading trauma researchers (Van Der Kolk, Levine, Koch etc..) agree that for the full circle of healing to occur we must also move through our trauma somatically (through the body).

This training is included in the 5-module series towards becoming a 200-hour certified Yoga Teacher. However, Yoga for Wellness is open to anyone looking to become trauma-informed using Yoga based practices, taking care of our students and or ourselves through their healing journey. 

I firmly believe that as Yoga teachers, we have a duty of care for all of our students to be trauma informed and to create a trauma-informed environment for our classes and private sessions. Creating a safe space to practice and explore Yoga for ALL of our students is paramount, no exceptions. Read more here.

In Yoga for Wellness we will explore how the brain and nervous system process trauma, how to build stress-resiliency, how to manage our mental well-being through Yoga and daily practice and how to overcome impediments to our overall wellness including managing chronic pain and improving the quality of sleep.

What you will learn: 

  • How the brain and nervous system process trauma
  • Foundation of the polyvagal theory
  • What it means to be trauma-informed
  • Understanding our somatic response to stress
  • How to handle triggers
  • Overview of chronic pain
  • How to support general conditions through practice
  • Intro to Yin + Restorative based practices
  • Becoming a storytelling
  • Intro to Ayurveda
  • Intro to Yoga Nidra

Key Competencies Taught: Biomechanics, Physiology, Meditation, Asana + Teaching Methodology.

Required Reading: 

  • Yoga for Wellness Training Manual (to be provided on the first day of training)
  • My Grandmother’s Hands by: Resmaa Menakem
  • Radiant Rest by: Tracee Stanley (provided in your gift bag if registered for full 200-hr program)

Yoga for Wellness counts as 45-hours towards your 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate. Training modules can be taken in any order, though Yoga Teaching Skills can only be taken once the other 4 modules have been completed.

Training hours run 9am – 5pm each day with a 30min. break for lunch.

Each day will open and close with meditation. Our journey in between will be a combination of theory, movement and meditation. Each day we will experience a master class designed to help us release trauma, rebuild stress resiliency and balance our nervous system. Subsequent learning will surround how to teach this style of practice including group work and practice teaching. A final assignment will be given in order to receive your certificate of completion.
