2023 Trauma Sensitive Yin Teacher Training
With a unique focus on trauma-informed teachings, energetics and mental health awareness in relation to yin yoga
This Yin teacher training has a unique focus on trauma sensitive teachings and mental health in relation to yin yoga. You will learn core principles of trauma informed yin practice and gain knowledge to apply in your work, practice and teachings. All sessions are live and in-person (no pre-recorded content), and the intimate group size allows a greater impact on the individual and provides a beautiful safe space for us to come together and immerse fully into the healing practices of yin and energetics.
What you will learn in this training:
One of the most important capabilities to develop for us in life is knowing how to restore and reset. When we experience life from a restful place, our nervous system is balanced, the body healthy and we can recover quickly from imbalances and life’s challenges. During a time of adversity, such as we are experiencing today, more and more people suffer from depression, anxiety, and fight or flight responses.
Teaching (and receiving) yin yoga is one of the major mind-body practices that make the difference. Shifting people from fight or flight to flow and restore.
This teacher training will cover a number of important teaching skills and processes that support the deepening of people’s experience of rest, behaviorally, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Its purpose is to provide access to tools and resources that teachers can use in order to create powerful and potent yin classes and masterclasses.
