What is Trauma Informed?
Trauma-informed means taking into account past trauma and the resulting coping mechanisms when attempting to understand the behaviors of those we are working alongside. It means bringing empathy and compassion to every interaction and creating a safe and accessible space for all. 

Who is This Training For?

This 20Hr Trauma-Informed Training is designed for yoga professionals (instructors, staff, studio owners), healthcare and mental health professionals, social and civil service professionals, teachers, first responders, humanitarian volunteers, staff and leaders, and all those who work with survivors of trauma wishing to incorporate yoga and movement-based practices into their work environments.


Through a better understanding of the body and how it is affected during certain circumstances and events (mentally, physically and emotionally), we as humans are able to ultimately return ourselves back to a balanced state of living, thus breaking the pattern of stress, anxiety, and eventually trauma within ourselves, our community and our globe.

During this training participants will:

·         Evaluate the science behind the mind/body connection

·         How trauma anatomically affects the body

·         How to identify trauma symptoms and trigger responses

·         Tools to promote biological resiliency, self-regulation and resolution

·         Protocol and best practices in the field

·         Invitational language

·         Community building and outreach methods

·         Ahimsa and the importance of self-care

·         How to create a safe space

·         Teaching methods for classrooms, yoga studios, healthcare practitioners, etc...


These trainings are offered in partnership with Legacy Motion, a non-profit organization that promotes resilience, empowerment, trauma resolution, psychosocial coexistence, peace and community building through restorative, movement-based practices. Through interrelated projects, Legacy Motion dedicates itself to evaluating, creating and implementing high-quality sustainable programs based on experience and collaborations in the field.

This training meets some of the requirements for certification as a Legacy Motion Facilitator.


This training also meets some of the requirements for certification through The Self-Agency Academy, a school dedicated to ensuring all offerings in the community have a mental health informed approach to promote safety and accessibility for all.
