One of the key components of therapy at Re.Pose is being trauma informed. Whether you're a yoga teacher, therapist or really, in any helping profession, being trauma informed in your practice can deeply impact your client's ability to have a predictable and safe environment in which to heal, re-associate with their bodies, and move on towards a more regulated life. This is why we offer Trauma Informed Yoga Training for all practitioners with Nicole Marcia from Fine Balance Yoga!
TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA TRAINING FOR YOGA & HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS
Traumatic events may lead to isolation, dysregulation, anxiety and depression and may result in individuals developing dysfunctional coping strategies. This training will look at the therapeutic application of the philosophy and practice of trauma informed yoga when working with trauma survivors. Participants will learn to teach safe, body-based, self-regulation techniques to meet the needs of a wide variety of people to support their day to day functioning and long term healing. This training is suitable for anyone working with populations in need.
