TRAINING COURSES


ACCREDITED TRAINING FOR
YOGA TEACHERS

Sara-mae joined Susi Wrenshaw of Trauma Therapy Manchester to devise and deliver an accredited trauma-informed training course specifically for yoga teachers.

Accredited by Yoga Alliance UK, with 100 hours CPD the course is an in-depth, practical approach to guiding students through each of the three phases of trauma recovery: stabilisation, processing and integration. It includes plenty of teaching practice, observations and feedback.

Teachers will receive practical training in experiencing, designing and implementing trauma recovery plans.

 

In addition, teachers will gain knowledge of working alongside psychology and psychiatry, basics of psychiatric medications, considering risk, safeguarding and working as part of a multi-disciplinary team within the NHS or privately.

The course itself offers an in-depth approach to ways in which to work with people who have experienced trauma. Aspects of the training course include:

  • Taking part in trauma informed yoga classes

  • Self study, awareness of personal history, triggers and emotional pain

  • Developing a healthy teacher/student relationship: the role you take – helper, rescuer, what of your personal history is coming into it?

  • Assessment of students and session planning (including watching demos and practicing)

  • Practical training in key concepts working with the koshas, gunas and chakras – planning a trauma informed session, delivery and developing the practice

  • Yoga practices for 3 phases of treatment as an adjunct to therapy: stabilisation, processing, integration

  • Working with complex or developmental trauma versus shock trauma

  • Spiritual bypass, meditation and dissociation

  • Handling stories, memories and other content. Addressing uncertainty

  • Risk assessment and suicide prevention

  • Safeguarding

  • Working alongside psychiatry and psychology services including basics of psychiatric medications
