Leading Trauma-Informed Yoga Anywhere for Yoga Teachers w/ Ashley Tryba
Mar 21, 2020 - Mar 22, 2020

Let’s discuss how to make and hold spaces that are more affirming for yogis with different experiences of embodiment: how to make yoga meaningful, fun, and accessible to most students!

We will engage in conversation around:

-Our understanding of what ‘trauma’ is, helping, fixing vs. serving, and defining other key terms in context.
-Cultivating awareness of how trauma affects you and your students and apply that lens to your practice and teaching
-Evidence backing the benefits of trauma-informed yoga
-Nervous system and neuroscience basics
-Building resistance with co-regulation skills
-How to set up a trauma-sensitive yoga classroom in studio and non-studio spaces
-How to structure and lead a trauma-sensitive class that is inclusive to people with varying levels of experience and ability
-Safe, sustainable, and accessible transitions
-Best practices for asana, pranayama, meditation, language + cueing
-The development of and cultural awareness + humility within yoga teaching
-What yoga service means and represents
-The importance of self-care, self-reflection + cultural humility as a yoga teacher and in yoga service work

This weekend training will include a few sample trauma-aware classes including asana (movement), pranayama (breath work), and guided meditations and facilitated discussions after each class. Students and teachers will leave with plenty of tools and skills for how to structure and lead trauma-sensitive yoga classes as well as a manual complete with best practices, notes, suggested readings + journaling prompts to keep them connected to their inner teacher for before, during, and after teaching.
