In the Level One teacher training, you will explore:
*The development, course, and consequences of trauma-related disorders
*The psychotherapeutic treatment of trauma-related disorders and how yoga fits into an integrative treatment approach
*Special considerations and cautions when providing yoga therapy
to veterans and other trauma-affected individuals
*Specific practices, guiding principles, and resources found to be helpful for veterans coping with trauma, including a detailed treatment manual with an empirically-informed, clinically-tested 12-week protocol, and access to a downloadable electronic copy (pdf) of the Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans Recovering from Trauma practice guide.
This Veterans Yoga Project training consists of a balance of practice and lecture/discussion. At the end of the training, participants will understand the symptoms of post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related disorders, how those symptoms are related to underlying neurobiology, and how to use this understanding to most effectively teach individuals recovering from trauma.
