About the training

The training aims to be a comprehensive experience to achieve new knowledge and reconnect with oneself and others. Therefore, it means there are components of teacher training and a yoga retreat. The course is structured as an intensive experience that will leave you empowered, fulfilled, and nourished. You will create new friendships and gain meaningful insights to bring back home.

In the modern world where a wide variety of people with different backgrounds and histories are joining yoga classes and retreats, it becomes essential for yoga teachers to acquire tools to face such diversity and provide the best class. However, to support others, you first need to understand yourself in terms of what your behaviors and defense mechanisms are. Hence, this course offers a profound inner journey into oneself and the core of one’s belief system.

The course explains the nervous system’s functioning and trauma’s dynamic. It focuses on how trauma affects the human brain and behaviors on an unconscious level. It also explains the relevance of learning and adopting a trauma-informed approach for modern yoga teachers. It provides all guidelines and practical instruments to handle your students in a yoga class and yourself in any critical situation.

You will gain precious insights and knowledge that will exponentially enrich your yoga experience regardless of your role. Overall, this training may be a profound journey to acquire new knowledge but also reconnect with oneself and others. For this reason, it is suitable both for yoga teachers and students as in the delicate and complex dynamic of a yoga class they are often mirroring each other.
