Join Nicole Marcia for this Intensive as part of the 2017 Victoria Yoga Conference. Yoga and Healthcare Professionals can apply trauma informed yoga and mindfulness in their work to support clients and students by teaching them body-based self-regulation techniques such as using their breath and physical sensations to connect to the present moment. By supporting and enhancing the efficacy of other therapeutic interventions, trauma informed yoga and mindfulness supports their long term stability and recovery. In this highly interactive training, participants will learn the theoretical and practical applications of therapeutically-based yoga across a variety of settings. You will learn:
- Explore the Yogic perspective of trauma and the body and how it complements and is unique from the allopathic perspective.
- Understand and be able to apply the theories and techniques of trauma informed Yoga in 1-1 sessions and small group settings.
- Learn about the importance of self-care and boundaries.
- Apply some of the theories and techniques of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.
