Minding the Body: Integrating Trauma-Focused Yoga into Talk Therapy Practice

This is a 25-hour, Trauma-Focused Yoga Teacher Training designed for therapists who want to bring a somatic focus to their practice using yoga as an integrative tool.

*Therapists Do Not need to be certified yoga teachers to attend this training!! (there is an option for yoga teachers who are not therapists to attend a part of this training- please keep reading to learn more).

This 25-hour training will lead to a certification in Trauma-Focused Yoga, as Nityda is registered and approved as a continuing education provider with Yoga Alliance and the state mental health licensing boards. (Please note, that to become a fully registered yoga teacher, you must also complete a 200-hour yoga teacher training at minimum).

In this training, you will learn about the history and philosophical implications that create and sustain yoga's usefulness in clinical contexts. You will receive an overview of Trauma and PTSD: what they are, how they impact the body-mind-spirit continuum, how they are stored in the brain, and how yoga is a supportive modality in their resolution, as supported by research. You will also receive a rich understanding of Polyvagal theory within the above content and a brief look into the neuroscience of trauma.

I will teach you a diverse repertoire of Yoga Tools: mindfulness meditations, mudras, yoga breathing exercises (pranayamas), and yoga poses (asanas) that have been proven effective for resolving trauma and improving overall mental health. You'll learn about yoga psychology and the clinical application of the chakra system in assessment and treatment planning.

You will gain an understanding of the Trauma-Focused Yoga Approach and how it differs from other Yogic perspectives. You'll learn how to make your sessions Trauma-Focused.

You will learn when, where, why and how to integrate the Yoga Tools learned into your clinical work and how to engage clients while in the yoga poses. This includes skills in assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, and clinical practice.

This training is experiential. You will participate in a practicum and case presentation to gain skills around how to teach the Yoga Tools within a therapy setting.

There will be opportunities for consultation and refresher courses upon completion of the training.

And...again, you will receive 25 CEU's if you are a licensed social worker, professional counselor, marriage and family therapist, psychologist and/or registered yoga teacher, as well as a certification in Minding the Body: Integrating Trauma-Focused Yoga into Talk Therapy Practice!
