Earn Academic Credit with LMU Extension: Trauma-Informed Yoga for Youth (8-Week Course)

Receive semester hours upon completion of our online trauma-informed yoga for youth course.

This course gives you the understanding and confidence to teach yoga to youth in a trauma-informed way.

Over the course of 8 weeks, you will dive into the physiological framework of trauma, how it manifests in the mind and body, and how to identify and address symptoms of trauma, including anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship stress, and health issues.

Emphasis is placed on the therapeutic applications of yoga for youth considered “at-risk.”

Our goal is to equip you with the confidence and skills to work with youth who have experienced trauma and offer them tools to feel safe, empowered, and self-regulated.

No experience required. Mat recommended :)
