Assisting in a Trauma Informed Way

  • Proactive Life Skills 13121 Atlantic Boulevard Jacksonville, FL, 32225 United States (map)

Therapeutic or healing touch can be such an important and essential element of a trauma informed yoga class - and it also can be triggering and cause students to have a negative experience.

This training will give participants tools to implement in their own class - both with incorporating touch, and also teaching participants ways to assist without physical touch. Participants will also learn about how trauma and abuse can affect the human body and how therapeutic healing touch can help bring healing.

This workshop is more physical than the past two workshops offered by Yoga 4 Change, and throughout the weekend participants will always have the option to sit out sections if they are physically fatigued or want to simply observe.

This workshop builds on the first two workshop offered by Yoga 4 Change, but will not repeat material. This workshop can be taken as an independent workshop.

Scholarships are available, and pricing discount for attending multiple workshops is also available.
