Sessions will include information about the neurobiology of trauma, how trauma shows up in the body, how language cues can assist in healing, and how movement practices can be a helpful tool for reconnecting the mind and body. 

This training will give you skills and tools to use with your students, clients, patients, or friends. This training will be rooted in yoga practices and philosophies and will give a well-rounded education for all. 

Friday’s session will be based in neurobiology and theory to understand how trauma occurs and what happens in the body.
