The impact of trauma is so profound that it is felt not just in the mind, but in the body as well. Survivors carry the effects of the traumatic events in their tissues, negatively affecting their ability to rest, to remember and process, and to achieve a state of regulation.
To successfully work with these clients, you need to utilize embodied practises that incorporate mind-body connection into your clinical practise. Mounting evidence points to yoga as a complementary tool that you need in your arsenal to effectively work with trauma survivors.
Michele Ribeiro has been using yoga and mindfulness with trauma survivors for over 20 years, and she wants to show you how to reenergize your own work. Find out how simple yoga poses and techniques can be introduced to help clients become aware of and then remove traumatic imprints through mind-body purifying processes. Teach clients how to send revitalizing, healing energy throughout their body. Discover the benefits of Yoga Nidra and how to help clients reach this state of relaxation and restoration.
This recording is your “how-to” guide for incorporating evidence-based yoga poses and techniques into your practise in a manner that is effective, ethical, and appropriate for your scope of practise.
You do not have to be a yoga therapist to apply what is learned in this recording to your own trauma work. You only need to have a desire to see transforming healing occur in the lives of your clients.
