Trauma-Informed YTT: Trauma, Somatics, and Psychology

October 17 - October 24

Trauma, Somatics, and Psychology with Marissa Nasca, LCSW

This module explores the intersection between the ancient practice of yoga and the Western-based somatic approach to understanding and healing trauma. You’ll learn the myriad ways that the body holds and releases stories of the past. You’ll also learn about important ethical principles of teaching trauma-informed yoga, the different settings and professions that are part of this work, how to get involved as a yoga teacher, and the importance of setting boundaries when working in this field. This module includes a range of practices, including meditation, visualization, journaling, and somatic experiencing exercises.
