Trauma-Conscious Yoga is based on the understanding that trauma is held in the cells of the body and mind – it is physiological rather than psychological and that reconnecting the body and mind with the synchronization of conscious breath, movement and concentration in a safe, secure and predictable environment supports healing and wellness. Another contributing factor is the feeling of isolation that occurs for trauma survivors which is recognized as a primary contributing factor to suicide. The evidence-based protocol manages and eases trauma’s negative consequences occurring in the body mind by reducing potential triggers of stress and providing choices which is the opposite of trauma. A large part of the physical benefits is the release of calming and positive thought producing chemicals which occur when in social gatherings with like-minded individuals. Practitioners learn techniques to reconnect and develop awareness of the bodymind needs in that moment.
This course is designed to develop an understanding of the effects of a broad spectrum of trauma survivors, the biological impacts of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress (Disorder)/PTS(D) and the healing dynamics of Trauma-Conscious Yoga (TCY), Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) and “Inner Technology for PTSD”. Participants will learn how to use the information that they have gained in this course to teach a TCY class to a variety of trauma demographics, as well as, practical tools and techniques to manage stress, anxiety and the side effects of PTS(D). The training will be interactive which gives participants practical experience, plus the opportunity to expound upon what they learned in the course.
