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 :)

“For those looking into this program, I love it [and] can’t wait to see what comes of it in our schools. Highly suggest having social work or similar background in addition to having 200hr yoga training... Great continuing education!”
