About the event
In this course, students are presented with both the western and eastern theories and modalities to support individuals who may have suffered emotional or physical trauma. From a physiological and psychological perspectives, students will learn how the human body responds during and after stressful or traumatic events. Students will learn and experience a variety of yogic approaches to help alleviate the symptoms of trauma as well as understanding the unique dynamics and challenges of this population. Included in the course will be information on how trauma effects the brain, body, nervous system and we will touch on the vagus nerve and poly vagal theory. Appropriate asanas, pranayama and dhyana practices for this audience will be demonstrated and be part of the practicum. A comprehensive manual will be included in this course and access to videos with additional material.
This course is appropriate for anyone who is teaching yoga or other mindful modalities, therapists or people who want to understand the impact of trauma and ways to use eastern and western modalities to support their ongoing classes, students, or patients.
