Trauma Informed Yoga & Ayurveda for professionals
This 50 hour course will introduce new brain science, such as the Polyvagal Theory, to illuminate how yoga and other somatic therapies can support Trauma release and reduce mental suffering, as in anxiety and depression. Students will receive a cursory introduction to Ayurveda and how self-care is so important in creating the ojas necessary to withstand the ripple effect of trauma release practices like TRE or Neurogenic Yoga. Students will learn and have opportunities to teach the "16 Weeks to Change" Curriculum throughout, integrating formal mindfulness practice as taught by Jon Kabat Zinn, with Mindfulness for the Senses/ Ayurveda 101.
Basic principles will be applied through homework between weekends, with short quizzes and teaching practices each weekend. Homework will primarily include self-care practices, home asana practice, reading and journaling.
