[Canceled] Olympia 2020 Trauma-Informed Yoga Training
Apr 24, 2019| $395 – $595
Join a growing force in your community creating positive change with trauma-sensitive yoga, movement, and meditation!
Study with experts in the field, and cover topics such as social justice and yoga, trauma-informed instructional strategies, boundaries, and self-care.
This training is for anybody wanting to learn trauma-informed, somatic tools. Past participants have included yoga instructors, medical professionals, social workers, mental health counselors, detention staff and people who want to deepen their own practice.
“This training is as much intellectually eye-opening as it is deeply heart-opening.
This training and this work are what the world needs more of. ” –YBB Trainee Olympia 2018
