What’s the most important skill in supporting others through transformation? The answer is having the tools to be of the highest service to the individual you are working with. That’s where trauma-sensitive yoga training comes in: while your students may not identify as trauma victims, the truth is we are all dealing with some form of suffering. Trauma-informed yoga teaches you how to read the room, hold space for everyone, become aware of individual needs, and offer effective practices. Read on for more about the universal value of trauma-sensitive training and why you might want to sign-up.
A Trauma-Sensitive Training is Right for You If…
1. You’re Already a Yoga Teacher Looking to Expand Your Education
This Training is perfect if you are already a yoga teacher, doula, circle holder, conscious lover, supportive friend, clinician, care provider, social entrepreneur, advocate, or soul seeker who is called to hold a safe space. People already come to you for help—and you’re looking for the trained skills to best support them.
2. You’re Looking for Guidance on Starting a Safe Space in Your Own Community
You’ll learn how to host SoulWork Circles for your own community and have a clear, concise, and powerful format that empowers you to guide others in their personal journey.
3. You Want to See More Change In the Yoga Community
Committing to teaching through a trauma-sensitive lens is perfect if your mission is to be an advocate for inclusivity, celebration of diversity, accessibility, and bringing yoga to a wider audience as a path to spiritual healing.
4. You Want to Build a Business Focused on Seva (Giving back)
We feel the next generation of yoga practitioners are soulful activists—ready to embody the yogic teachings through their lifestyle and find creative ways to build holistic businesses that also give back to their communities.
