Trauma touches most people. Yoga can help move it.
As a yoga teacher it is important to be aware of trauma and its impact, and to know how to support its release when it happens in your class. (Or in you!)
When we go through events that shock us, physically or emotionally, trauma can settle into our bodies. It affects nerve and organ function, how we think, and how we react to future events.
During yoga classes, the movement of tissues and energy can relieve trauma that is stuck, creating more possibilities for healing and freedom.
This workshop is for yoga teachers looking to develop skills and gain a deeper perspective on how to recognise and shift trauma in each class you teach.
Join Michael as he explains exactly what trauma is, how it gets into the body, and how it gets out of the body. You’ll learn what to look for and what to do to help students absolve trauma in a safe way both in and out of poses.
