Trauma Informed Yoga Training
the Yoga Mandala Project
It is my honour to be one of the trainers on this course for the Yoga Mandala Project,
with whom i have been affiliated since 2015.
The Yoga Mandala Project is a not-for-profit initiative that supports the wellbeing of refugees and humanitarians
working within these communities. We develop sustainable yoga programs, volunteer as yoga teachers in the field,
host trauma informed training, and organize crisis relief projects.
Virtual YMP Training.
The training will be very experiential based and will also include informative discussions led by our six trauma informed trainers each specializing in different aspects of the trauma-informed approach.
This training will enhance your understanding of trauma and the effects of PTSD, as well as how to best adapt your classes to be most supportive for refugees and other demographics impacted by trauma.
We will offer an introduction to trauma informed facilitation and self-care through live sessions, personal reflections, self-study, and both live and recorded experiential practices.
