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 who have experienced trauma. The yoga and mindfulness practices shared in this course can be taught to children and teens in-person and online to support students at home, in classroom environments, and in therapeutic settings.

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.
