Trauma Informed Training
Trauma Informed Training Rose Mina Munjee, Registered Psychotherapist, and Kim McBean, Senior Experienced Yoga Teacher. Course dates for 2022 have not yet been announced.
Teaching with a trauma-informed lens creates the conditions to support self-inquiry, choice, autonomy, and empowers practitioners to befriend and reclaim their bodies.
You will learn the principles of trauma-informed teaching, including fostering safer practice spaces and helping others to grow their resilience, heal, and thrive. The methods shared in this workshop offer tools to support embodied strength, joy, ease, and ways to explore a more intimate relationship with oneself and community.
We will examine ways to cause less harm with compassion and sensitivity while fostering an inclusive environment to support embodiment, connection, and personal growth.
This is a Professional Development course — it is not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Past attendees have included yoga teachers, YTTs, educators, psychotherapists, social workers, massage therapists, and others interested in learning about trauma and how it affects the people they work with.
You do not need to be a certified Yoga Teacher to attend the training — all are welcome!
Yoga Instructors seeking YA CE credits: Trauma Informed Training with Union Yoga counts towards CE credits with the Yoga Alliance for eligible movement instructors. Certificates will be issued upon completion.
