This weekend workshop lead by Brendon Abram and Kellie Dearman is for clinicians and mental health professionals who would like to incorporate yoga into their practice or yoga teachers who would like to learn how to teach a trauma sensitive style of yoga.

Developing a client’s capacity to self-regulate is an integral part of supporting their recovery from a trauma or stress related condition. Increasingly, mindful yoga is being recognized as an effective technique for learning how to regulate mood. What may not be as evident, however, is that you do not need to be a yoga teacher to teach trauma sensitive yoga. With some basic knowledge and a little practice, anyone who understands the essence of trauma and stress related conditions can incorporate the yogic practices of breath, mindful movement, and meditation into their treatment strategy. In this workshop you will learn how to do just that.

You will earn 20 YA CEC with this training.
