Mindful Yoga for Trauma Training for Yoga Teachers • 15-Hour Program

For many of us, the practices of yoga have changed our lives. That statement may seem dramatic, but it’s true. These practices teach us to turn inward, to pay attention, and to notice without judgment. They enable us to find balance in our bodies and minds, as well as develop our overall well-being. Because of those benefits, yoga is an invaluable asset for veterans who are coping with trauma-related psychological difficulties.

Yoga practices are a powerful complement to professional treatment for Post Traumatic Stress. A mindful, embodied yoga practice can provide relief from symptoms and develop the supportive skills that veterans need in their everyday lives. Yoga does not cure Post Traumatic Stress, but it has proven to aid in a veteran’s healing journey.

Embodyoga, created by Patty Townsend, is the basis for Mindful Yoga Therapy for VeteransMindful Yoga Therapy is an Embodyoga® based, empirically informed, clinically tested program comprised of five practices: Pranayama (breathing), Asana (postures connected with breath), Yoga Nidra, Meditation, and Gratitude. Each practice is a tool veterans can use to cope with Post Traumatic Stress, and together, they form a comprehensive system—a toolbox—that will carry veterans into a life of strength and resilience.

The healing effects of these ancient yogic practices have begun to receive recognition from modern scientists. Research has discovered and validated what the yogis have known for centuries: yoga is one of the most effective ways to encourage and stimulate the healing process.

Clinical trials have demonstrated that even the best yoga teachers need to acquire a specific set of skills and considerations to work in trauma recovery programs. To that end, Mindful Yoga for Trauma Training for Yoga Teachers has been fully supported by the Give Back Yoga Foundation with the goal of creating the most qualified and supportive team possible.

This 15-hour training program is for 200-hour certified yoga teachers.  Mindful Yoga Center also offers 200-hour teacher training.
