LEARNING TO TEACH

Current research shows that trauma is pervasive today, woven into the very fabric of human culture. Trauma may be due to circumstances in this lifetime, or inherited from previous generations. In this time of the pandemic where there is loss of life and political and social unrest, we are witnessing a global acceleration of the traumatic experience.

As yoga practitioners we must ask, what is trauma and how does it effect the body-mind?

How can stretching, breathing, meditation, sound, and visualization practice help break the grip of traumatic holding?

In this course we investigate the impact of trauma on the mind and body and how anxiety and stress become embedded in the body’s soft tissues. While the historical yoga teachings do not point directly to trauma, they refer to obstacles, afflictions, and “poisons” that impair progress on the path. We will examine contemporary research in psychology, dreamwork, neurology, and somatic-emotional processing in order to provide you with the tools necessary to address trauma in your community and for your students and clientele.
