Lets face it, most people have experienced some level of trauma in their lives that is important to honor and understand in our teaching.

The study and practice of yoga is a lifelong endeavor and 200-hour teacher trainings often do not cover how to effectively teach those with trauma histories and vulnerable nervous systems. As health professionals, we may not recognize the signs of trauma and honor that many people show no signs of trauma though it may be just under the surface. With direct insight, understanding, and observation through skillful means, we can act compassionately and knowledgeably to heal.

Workshop includes:

— Learn how trauma is held in the body including a brief overview of current neurobiology research
— Learn how yoga and mindfulness practices help calm and rewire the brain and reduce symptoms
— Learn how different students may have different trauma presentations from triggering to numbing
— Learn the principles of teaching trauma-informed yoga and how to teach a carefully sequenced class.

— A Registered Yoga Teacher, Gretchen Donovan teaches classes and workshops to support self-awareness and reflection for all levels and body types. She teaches “the person” not the pose. Two decades of practice in the classical traditions of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga provided a prolific foundation for her expertise. Subsequently training in the contemporary style of Prajna Yoga delivered more contemplative practice and anatomy study. Most recently influenced by the work accomplished with trauma survivors at the Trauma Center in Boston Massachusetts, she weaves the subtle nuances and precision of these disciplines into her teaching. She is the Co-Founder of Mindfulness Yoga for Trauma with Dr. Dianne Sterling.

— Dr. Dianne Sterling is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice for over twenty five years and a mindfulness consultant at Scripps Center for Executive Health for the last decade. She also volunteers to treat military vets for PTSD as part of the Give An Hour program. She is a long-term meditator and yoga practitioner with extensive training and experience in using mind-body methods in treating all forms of trauma, and teaching mindfulness. She follows and implements the latest innovations for trauma recovery, drawing from pioneering research including interpersonal neurobiology, energy psychology, polyvagal theory and uses of yoga and mindfulness to treat trauma. She is excited to combine her trauma expertise and understanding of the research with her background in yoga and mindfulness in developing the innovative MYT course with cofounder, Gretchen Donovan.
