Trauma is a silent epidemic at the heart of many of the issues we face in society. 
Trauma-informed yoga focuses on moving with ease and breathing with intention as we explore inward and discover how to become our own agents of change. The process of transformation from victim to victor is an inside job and Yoga is a powerful tool for discovering inner strength, flexibility, endurance, balance… and even joy!. 

TIYT Level 1 Earth Module of study is designed to teach trauma-informed care practices as they apply to leading public yoga classes (25 hours of in-person study).

Earth Element (Level 1 training) Amazing Yoga, Vienna, Austria. October 23-26, 2020 (25 classroom hours):
Many people with unresolved trauma use Yoga as part of their healing journey to manage anxiety or stress levels - without realizing that remnants of trauma often surface during a somatic practice like Yoga. Trauma sensitive community yoga classes are more about how yoga is practiced and less about specific poses.

Level 1 training covers trauma informed principles for leading yoga classes while following SAMHSA’s (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, USA) standards for Trauma Informed Care.

  • • how to create a safe space for the practice of yoga
    • Yoga Psychology/Philosophy
    • Yoga Philosophy
    • interpersonal psychology
    • mindfulness
    • ethics & boundaries
    • scope of practice
    • self-care

Slow, intentional movement and breath in an environment that feels safe and supportive allow the student to venture inward, and over time, find a space of peace and calm deep within. Trauma informed yoga instructors learn to recognize when a student is triggered and offer practices that support a return to balance within the autonomic nervous system.

TIYT™ Earth Element curriculum provides:

  1. Education about trauma, how widespread it is and an exploration of the role of a Yoga practice as a potential path for recovery.
  2. Evaluation of what a sense of safety is; requirements and considerations of creating a safe space for a Yoga practice (different for everyone).
  3. Didactic lectures and experiential exercises focused on recognition of signs and symptoms of trauma in students participating in a Yoga class.
  4. Integration of knowledge about trauma into class sequencing, choice of language and other facets of teaching Trauma Informed public Yoga classes.
  5. Facilitate a comprehensive examination of aspects of a Yoga class that:
    a) have a potential to trigger or be problematic in other ways, and how to mitigate that potential.
    b) provide traditional Yoga tools that foster self-regulation on demand.
  6. Methods and procedures that are aimed at actively resisting re-traumatization of students with unresolved trauma.
