25hr trauma-sensitive
restorative Yoga Teacher Training

trauma informed yoga

In a restorative yoga practice, we open the aperture of our awareness, and we access a state of potency. Through lecture, group discussion, and practicum you will learn how to guide yourself and others into a deeper state of being.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Pathways to this deeper state include supported postures, pranayama, and meditation; the nervous system is regulated, our endocrine (hormonal) system is activated,  and we are able to rest and digest life. Measurable results of relaxation include reduction of blood pressure, anxiety, muscle tension, and fatigue. These states are also show to improve immune function, digestion, strengthen the vagal tone, increase heart rate variability, and regulate the nervous system.

As a student in this training, you will learn:

  • How to confidently guide students through a full restorative class or incorporate restorative states into other yoga classes
  • The creative art of using props
  • Introduction to assisting, and touch theory
  • How to intelligently sequence a series that will initiate relaxation, healing, and nervous system regulation
  • Introduction to trauma, heart rate variability, vagal tone and the stress response
  • Anatomy of the nervous system and understanding of how restoration supports a dysregulated nervous system
  • Breathing mechanics (anatomy, and embryological origin)
  • The neurological benefits of pranayama (breath)
  • Anatomy of endocrine (hormonal) systems
  • What is it to restore? How is it different than resting, meditating or sleeping?

This training is best suited for:

Anyone seeking to understand restorative practices and benefits on a deeper level. No prerequisites are required. For registration into our level two training, there are prerequisites and an application is required.

Post-course requirements for certification:

Lead 5 trauma-informed classes (minimum three attendees per class), read Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A. Levine, PhD and provide a page summary, and choose an area of the Anatomy curriculum that interests you and complete a one-half to one page write up.

I bow deeply to your willingness to do the good work. Your courage will yield great fruits.

It will be my privilege to be with you, as you step more fully into life. As what happens with-in: changes the outer expression of who you are, and what you understand life to be.

In our journey together you will be invited to traverse a rich inner landscape, one that is ripe with messages just for you. In essence you will be your own greatest teacher, and I the guide.

I offer free 15 minute phone consultations where we can determine if we are a “fit” for this profound journey. To schedule a consult please email:

Scheduling@Eleanorbramwell.com

I understand that your interest in embarking on self journey is rooted from a desire to expand. To live more fully. To experience deeper contact with life. To find purpose. To bring your gifts forward into the world.

I bow to this urge in you. And, in our journey it will be my privilege to guide you as you step more fully into life. It will be my great honor to witness you, as you remember who you truly are.

Together we will explore inner evolution and anatomical alignment, and of course, how they inter-relate. We will play in the living laboratory of your body/heart/mind. We will work together to create greater ease and freedom, and explore the more subtle levels of what it means to be human.

We can view this change as a creative process, knowing that inner growth creates outer change, and similarly, that outer change can create inner growth. Our capacity for insight, understanding, and self reflection changes the outer expression of who we become.

I commit to seeing you as you truly are. You are already whole, and complete; and you are seen.

Love,
E
