Join the full 300hr Certification or Individual 100hr Modules

Full 300hr October 25, 2021 - May 15, 2022

Module 1 October 25 - Dec 19, 2021

The Training:

This training is more than an education, it is a transformational learning experience and an opportunity to expand from a teacher, leader, clinician, or caregiver, to an embodied facilitator, holder of braver spaces, and vessel of social justice.

What is Trauma-Informed?

Trauma-informed means taking into account past trauma and the resulting coping mechanisms when attempting to understand the behaviours of those we are working alongside. It means bringing empathy and compassion to every interaction and creating a safe and accessible space for all. It means being solution-based, forward-focused, and growth-minded in order to move into possibility and positive change.

Join myself & Kirsten from Legacy Motion, and our international special guest faculty in this trauma-informed approach to facilitation, where you will learn the skills to share trauma informed practices that include yoga, embodiment, and somatic therapies with all people and all bodies.

Connect with an international community of peers to learn, develop & share trauma-informed embodied practices, yoga and somatics.
This is a personable training with only 20 SPACES AVAILABLE so that we are able to build strong communication between all students, whilst creating and maintaining an on-going community of movement facilitators across the globe.

This Training is designed for: 

  • Experienced, new and novice yoga teachers and yoga business owners hoping to integrate trauma-informed and accessible yoga in studios, online and in community settings.
     

  • Health, social, service, and teachers, community professionals hoping to integrate yoga, embodied, and mindful somatic practices with a trauma-informed approach into their existing practice, organizations, and work.
     

  • Activists, humanitarians and social justice advocates hoping to add somatic awareness, embodied practices and community connection to their social justice and systemic change agendas.
     

  • Those wanting to deepen their own understanding of how movement can be used as an integrated tool in the processing and experiencing of everyday life from a more embodied perspective.

Equity in Investment  

 

Choosing your tier

We are committed to offering trainings, mentorships and opportunities that are of the highest quality, affordable and accessible while striving to keep equity and mutual exchange at the soul of how we serve.   

We recognize that we live in systems of inequity and we strive to find ways of finding balance within this. We feel that the deepest engagement and greatest benefit comes when there is a meaningful mutual exchange.  

For these reasons, we offer tiered pricing. There is an invitation to reflect on your access to resources and privilege, the value of this work, what you can genuinely afford, and what you might pay for comparable training programs. By committing to what is truly within your means you make it possible for others to show up within theirs and we are all grateful for this.

 

Payment plans are available if you need. Please reach out to me to discuss this further: info@theselfagencyacademy.com
 

Scholarships

In addition to our tiered pricing, we also have scholarships available for:

1) People from non-western / low-economy countries and financially marginalized communities, who otherwise would be unable to access a training such as this.
