Trauma Awareness Training  for Yoga Teachers 

Teachers: Maddy Smith and Rose Thorn
A new, three part experiential course aimed at yoga teachers.

There is increasing evidence that Yoga is a valuable intervention to support people who are recovering from trauma. This is backed up by research and recent developments in the fields of neuroscience and trauma therapy. There is also a growing awareness of the importance of trauma sensitivity in all aspects of yoga teaching and this course has been developed to meet this specific training need.

This is an experiential course aimed at yoga teachers with all levels of teaching experience. It trains you to apply a trauma sensitive approach in all aspects of your teaching; it does not qualify you to deliver trauma treatments as a yoga therapist.

Dates: This course is delivered in three compulsory modules.
Module 1: Understanding Trauma – the basics
Module 2: The Impact and Effects of Trauma / Survival Responses
Module 3: Considerations for Teaching

A non-refundable deposit secures your place on this course;
There a limited number of spaces on the course offered at a reduced rate to make it more accessible for students.

Relax and Rejuvenate Yoga Retreat

With Michelle Oliver Barefoot Yogini, 6th – 8th Sept 2019

If you have a busy life, with lots of demands on your time, then this is the place for you to relax and rejuvenate.

During your stay you will enjoy twice daily yoga sessions as well as morning meditation and evening Yoga Nidra sessions with Michelle. Do as little or as much as you like !

I have been hosting classes, workshops and retreats here in the U.K. and overseas for the past 10 years. My teaching was born out of my love for yoga and the beautiful and profound personal journey I found myself on. I simply wanted to keep learning and keep sharing the knowledge with as many people as I could. I enjoy teaching people of all ages and abilities as much as I love the challenges that I continue to discover in my own personal practice. It is my hope that through my classes people will also experience the deep joy, serenity and healing that yoga has offered for me.
