How to Keep Your Shit Together and Help Everyone Else Along The Way

Summer Session 2015 Cohort

It is said that in our modern age "we are all in shock". Yoga studio waivers do not take full histories of peoples life experiences. Meaning, we do not always know who and with what trauma story someone might walk into our class. Rather than being afraid, we can simply take this as opportunity to educate ourselves as teachers. We can build classes and teach in a "Psychologically Sound" way so that our class is for everyone, regardless of story. We can also continue to work through our own patternsand build new connections within our psyches and bodies to such a degree that our very presence in the classroom is a healing itself.

Have you ever noticed the yoga practice elicits or surfaces emotions and stories?
Are you curious about how shock and trauma is stored in the body?
Do you feel like you need to know how to support your students when their emotions pour through them in class?
Do you want to understand how to teach a "Psychologically Sound" class for all?
Are you ready to work with your own emotions using your body as tool for support?
Are you willing to add a layer of depth to your teaching, making you a safe space for all?
If you answered YES to any or all of these, this course is for you.

This webinar teaches the essentials of somatic (body-based) resourcing, cutting edge understanding of shock and trauma, why yoga is a natural tool for moving out of shock and into embodiment, and so much more...
