Trauma-informed Yoga Therapy : Foundations Training @ BCCP

YogaTherapyTrainingAlexBauermeisterBoston

Yoga Therapy training with Alex Bauermeister will fundamentally change how you show up in the world.  You'll learn to listen, heal and connect differently. You'll learn intuitive fluidity in working with bodies, hearts, minds and nervous systems. You'll come to embody the qualities that support healing : empowerment, radical acceptance, transformational inquiry, trauma literacy, and skillful facilitation of therapeutic experience. 

Join Alex Bauermeister for an introductory training in trauma-informed YOGA THERAPY for mental and emotional resiliency. Whether you're a yoga teacher looking to hold deeper healing space, or a mental health professional looking to get clients out of their head and into their body, this training will equip you with foundational tools for bridging the mind-body-emotional connection that is essential for healing trauma. Through group yoga therapy classes, demo's, partner exchanges, presentation and discussion, you'll learn the defining elements and benefits of yoga therapy, and gather tools that you can immediately apply to your work and life.

COURSE CONTENT: Over the course of 2 days, we will:

  • Define trauma-informed yoga therapy, understand how it's different from modern postural yoga instruction, and see it in action through group yoga therapy classes and 1-on-1 sessions.

  • Distinguish cues and dialogue prompts to take clients beyond physical yoga (asana) instruction to facilitate mind-body-emotional connection, meditative awareness, and radical presence.

  • Differentiate yoga posture instruction that helps clients sense and befriend their body, energy and nervous system, instead of fighting, dissociating and overriding.

  • Explore hands-on bodywork coupled with 1-on-1 dialogue to practice ongoing consent, trauma-responsiveness, and nervous system soothing.

  • Illuminate tools, concepts and ways of being that not only support personal healing, but also help shift oppressive systems and culture.

PREREQUISITES: No previous experience of yoga therapy required, but please come with some experience of yoga. This training is ideal for current and aspiring yoga teachers, as well as therapists. For students of yoga who wish to take this training to deepen their own practice, please inquire with alex@intrayogatherapy.com. To be best prepared for this training, here is some recommended exposure:

  • Follow related topics on social media, such as @the.holistic.psychologist, @integrate_network, @susannabarkataki, @matthewlicata, #accessibleyoga and #traumainformed.

TRAINING HOURS & COST: 9am - 6pm, Saturday and Sunday. Lunch break 1 - 2pm. Training costs $285 and totals 16 contact hours. Continuing education credits available for yoga teachers (YA) and yoga therapists (IAYT).
