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.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Defining the territory of trauma and identifying different types of trauma

  • Discussing trauma related to racism, oppression, marginalization, and intersectionality

  • Learning about neuroscience and physiology of trauma; dysregulation; window of tolerance

  • Reviewing core principles of teaching trauma-informed practices

  • Introducing the concepts of proprioception, interoception, and exteroception

  • Awareness of the impact of language and consent

  • Supporting empowerment, accessibility, and inclusivity

  • Experiencing embodied somatic mindfulness and self-compassion tools

  • Exploring the importance of continued self-healing

This full-day workshop will serve as an introduction to the theory and experience of trauma-informed practices. This is a prerequisite to an upcoming in-depth Trauma-Informed Teacher Training, please email teachertraining@unionyogastudio.ca for interest and priority enrollment.
