Trauma-Informed Yoga Training with Cindy Reed
SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 2019 & SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2019 • 10AM – 6PM
LOCATION: THE ESSENCE OF YOGA CENTER
This weekend training is taught by Cindy Reed, LCSW, a yoga and mindfulness instructor, and a Certified Daring Way™ facilitator. Participants will earn continuing education credits through Yoga Alliance, and become certified to teach trauma-informed yoga classes. In partnership with Ampersand Sexual Violence Resource Center, this CEU creates a bridge between students who participate in this training and the many opportunities to volunteer and to serve populations in need across the region.
Through experiential practice and collaborative discussion, participants will gain an understanding of the neuroscience of trauma, examine key themes of trauma-informed yoga practice and teaching, explore research that supports yoga as a force for creating positive change in students’ experience of trauma, and learn tools, techniques, and contraindications for teaching trauma-informed yoga.
