Deivered by
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 well-being 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.

Training Modalities:

in addition to the twelve live sessions we will share recommended practices and reading between sessions.

Course Materials and content:

You will receive the YMP Trauma-Informed Facilitation Manual prior to the start of the course. 

Audio and video recordings will also be part of your training material.

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. 

  • Introduction to trauma, vicarious trauma & the polyvagal theory

  • Trauma and the subtle body

  • Breath and trauma

  • Trauma informed methodology

  • Trauma-informed first-aid

  • Trauma healing tools

  • Self and community-care

  • TRE

  • Ethics, boundaries, and inclusion

  • Svādhyāya

All bodies are welcome. The material will be supportive not only for yoga teachers, but also for social workers, service providers, recreational teachers, and others working with demographics impacted by trauma.

As yoga teachers, we have a responsibility to carry the healing practice out into the world. We can start close by, in our families, our communities, and the circle of hope and positivity grows. As the circle grows, more hands are called to join in lifting spirits and restoring dignity. Together we continue to grow a mandala of trauma-informed teachers around the world - we invite you to join our community this autumn!!
