Trauma Informed Yoga Training with Hala Khouri | hOMe Holistic

March 2 - March 4

Trauma-Informed Yoga Training with Hala Khouri, M.A., E-RYT, SEP
a training for yoga teachers, clinicians, social workers, medical personnel, and individuals working with communities with trauma

This 3-day training is designed to offer a physiological framework of shock and complex trauma and how they manifest in the body and mind. We will give you tools from the growing field of trauma research, yoga, and mindfulness to manage and even resolve symptoms of trauma. Our goal is to equip yoga teachers to teach to students with trauma and to offer tools to those working with those with trauma in other capacities.

Anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship stress, and health issues are often the result of unresolved trauma. The goal of a trauma-informed yoga practice is to build resiliency and establish greater self-regulation. It is about feeling safe and at-home in our bodies so that we can feel stable, have good self-esteem, and healthy relationships. A trauma-informed yoga practice is sensitive to the needs of a participant with trauma symptoms and offers them tools to feel safe, empowered, and self-regulated.

Along with addressing individuals, this training will also explore how systemic patterns of trauma, at the heart of social justice issues such as poverty and racism, impact entire communities of people.

This training is for yoga teachers who would like to work with individuals or communities with trauma. It is also for clinicians, social workers, medical personnel, or anyone else who would like to integrate basic yoga tools into their work to support greater health and well-being.

This 16-hour training covers the following essential information for teaching trauma-informed yoga:
Shock, developmental, complex, and collective trauma
The stress response and the nervous system
Somatic therapy tools for resourcing and discharge
Yoga postures, breathing techniques, and meditations to support self-regulation
Trauma-informed cueing and sequencing
Practice teaching
Social Justice basics
Self-awareness (how our personal life experiences inform our work)
Vicarious trauma and self-care
