Yoga and mindfulness are evidence based: More than 40 published studies, including controlled clinical trials, report yoga’s positive benefits. Trauma-informed yoga and mind-body practices help to downregulate the nervous system, increase self-awareness, and support healthy responses to feelings of overwhelm. This Trauma Resiliency training will provide mind-body tools and techniques that immediately support self-care, improved service delivery, job satisfaction, and job longevity.

This training acknowledges all types of trauma, including historical, collective, generational, and racialized trauma, and supports folks in:

  • Understanding how stress and trauma effect the brain and body physiologically.

  • Addressing challenges to practicing self-care while doing time sensitive, stressful, and demanding work.

  • Building skills to recognize and respond to symptoms of stress or trauma in themselves and others.

  • Gaining accessible, tangible tools that build distress tolerance, and help to minimize the negative physiological impacts of stress and trauma.

  • Being comfortable applying mindfulness, movement, and breathwork in a professional role with clients.
