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.
