Yoga Teacher Training

trauma informed yoga training
We have collaborated with experts in the field of trauma to bring you a comprehensive evidence and inquiry based 50 hr trauma-informed yoga teacher training. Yoga teachers, therapists, clinicians, trauma workers, and any individual interested in trauma informed yogic practices.  Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis to students with demonstrated need who plan to take the learnings back out into the world and impact underserved or underrepresented communities

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Through lecture, self-inquiry, group discussion, practice teaching, and the latest advances in neurobiology, we will investigate trauma theories, trauma-informed yoga, and the body-based healing. After completion of this training, you will feel empowered to offer trauma-informed yoga classes to a variety of population. If you are not a yoga teacher, this training will support you in your own self-regulation, and offer you tools you can use with patients and clients.

As a student in this training, you will learn:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of what trauma is and the impact. Specifically, how traumatized people process information, trauma symptoms, and how trauma impacts sensorimotor processing.

  • Through exploration of A.C.E , complex trauma, developmental trauma, and attachment theories, you will be able to articulate the range of adaptation to trauma in early life.

  • Learn tools to increase heart rate variability, increase neuroplasticity, decrease activity in the default mode network, induce the relaxation response,  support nervous system regulation, body awareness, and communication. These skills will be useful in your own journey as well valuable to integrate in your role as a teacher.

  • You will have tools to make your standard classes more trauma sensitive. Through practicum, you will feel empowered to offer trauma-informed yoga classes with individuals and small groups.

  • We will explore recent advances in neurobiology of trauma, and how trauma-informed yoga can be a body-based tool for those healing trauma.

  • Learn how trauma affects children’s proprioception, interoception, brain development, emotional regulation, and cognition.

Post-course requirements for certification:

Lead 10 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.

Please note:

THIS IS NOT A THERAPEUTIC INTENSIVE.  Whilst we hold space for interpersonal transformation, this is professional training. Also, missing more than two hours of training, will require individual to pay for an individual session(s) with one of our trauma facilitators, to be eligible for certification.

Our Students are Saying:

“I took a Trauma Informed YTT. Eleanor is incredible, she is so engaging that she is able to offer us hard sciences in a very approachable way. She weaves the western science and energetics seamlessly. She understands the neurology, biology,  nervous system, and also the layers of human experience and wounding. She is really gifted at reading the room, and responding to what is needed there in each moment.”

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.

I weave a strong tapestry from the threads of my education and training. I will draw from my experience and collegic education in Developmental Psychology, as a Board Certified Structural Integrator, Certified Trauma Specialist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in training, Certified Breathworker, TRE provider, bodyworker, yoga instructor, and human doing my own work.

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
