Yoga for Trauma

Sunday, April 19, 2020

This workshop will present an overview to equip teachers with knowledge and
tools to help students with various forms of trauma. We will examine the
impact of trauma on the individual and how it affects a student in a yoga
class. Yoga teachers can learn to better understand trauma and develop skills
to help support students to become empowered through the practice of Iyengar
Yoga. The workshop will include a presentation by a Social Worker on the
causes and manifestations of trauma and how to help those with trauma to
build resilience.

Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event and can arise from
physical injury or accident, proximity or exposure, PTSD,
addiction/rehabilitation, loss, and emotional scars.
Longer-term reactions to trauma can include emotional, mental, relational and
physical symptoms.

Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics offers free yoga classes to at-risk communities
throughout Southern California. This workshop is designed to both provide
tools for teachers working in this context as well as all teachers working
with students for who the impact of past trauma arises in daily life.
Teachers will learn how to help students feel safely engaged through yoga.
