Event Description

Join Yoga Outreach for an incredible 3-day Trauma-Informed Yoga Training! This training is suitable for movement instructors and/or yoga teachers looking for ways to better serve students coping with mental health challenges, or are looking to teach in social service settings with marginalized populations. Our trauma-informed yoga training has a large experiential component designed to familiarize qualified yoga teachers with more empowering language for individuals facing multiple barriers, including domestic violence, PTSD, addictions, incarceration, and mental illness. Develop an understanding of: • The effects of trauma and post-traumatic stress • Creating safe spaces • The power of “invitational language” and "language of inquiry” • Understanding and managing potential triggers • Tools for self-regulation Learn to create a strengths-based class, with a focus on: • Boundaries and self-care • Equality, marginalization, and privilege Familiarize yourself with social service yoga settings such as prisons, addiction recovery centres, domestic violence transition homes, or mental health facilities. Learn: • What to expect: building rapport, mandates, and responsibilities. • Opportunities for practicum, volunteer placement, and on-going mentorship. Tuition $360 or $310 if paid by October 25. All proceeds go directly towards providing weekly trauma-informed yoga within mental health programs, addictions recovery centres, prisons, transition houses, youth centres, and other social service centres across British Columbia. "I took part in the training in 2014 and I thought it was absolutely invaluable. As a yoga instructor, I want to be aware of who might be coming to my class and what they may be dealing with. Yoga Outreach provides the language and education necessary to teach not only the general population, but also those who may be dealing with trauma or other mental health issues."
