How to keep your shit together

(Yoga, Trauma, Self Regulation and Resourcing)


May 17-20 2018


It is said that in our modern age "we are all in shock". Yoga studio waivers do not take full histories of peoples life experiences.Meaning, we do not always know who and with what trauma story someone might walk into our class.

Rather than being afraid, we can simply take this as opportunity to educate ourselves as teachers. We can build classes and teach in a "Psychologically Sound" way so that our class is for everyone, regardless of story.

We can also continue to work through our own patterns and build new connections within our psyches and bodies to such a degree that our very presence in the classroom is a healing itself.

  • Have you ever noticed the yoga practice elicits or surfaces emotions and stories?

  • Are you curious about how shock and trauma is stored in the body?

  • Do you feel like you need to know how to support your students when their emotions pour through them in class?

  • Do you want to understand how to teach a "Psychologically Sound" class for all?

  • Are you ready to work with your own emotions using your body as tool for support?

  • Are you willing to add a layer of depth to your teaching, making you a safe space for all?


This training will provide you with ample education and exploration regarding...

  • The essentials of somatic (body-based) resourcing-- so you can keep your shit together. 

  • Cutting edge understandings of shock and trauma from Neuroscience and Yoga Psychology perspectives: The Nervous System, Polyvagal Theory, Learning and Memory Formation, The Limbic System. 

  • Why yoga is a natural tool for moving out of shock and into embodiment. 

  • How to assess for activation in your body.

  • How to read a room and assess for activation and support as necessary within the context of general studio classes.

  • How to work with special populations of people who are more likely to have trauma embedded in there systems.

  • How to remain in your scope of practice and refer students out as necessary.
