Trauma-Informed, Brain-Sensitive (TIBS) Yoga Teacher Training: Level One
Created by Sarahjoy Marsh, MA, E-RYT 500,
This Training is now offered online as an in-depth video course!
Informed by emerging fields of trauma research and neuroscience, this powerful and unique training blends yoga, neuroscience, mindfulness, and brain science to address the complexities and residues of trauma in brain, mind and body. Together, we explore the rhythms of trauma, its manifestations in the mind and body, and how to re-awaken crucial brain capacities for living a vital life. We will dive deeply into polyvagal theory, attachment theory, and the value of right and left brain functions. Integrated with and facilitated through yogic practices, this is an embodied practice of social justice and transformation.
This training is appropriate for yoga teachers and mental health professionals. It is designed for those interested in integrating yoga, mindfulness, and meditation into their work.
This online video training covers content in yoga, neuroscience, mindfulness, and trauma-informed methodologies. The training focuses on trainees' skill development in multiple aspects of teaching, including language choices, pace, voice prosody, and reciprocity. Not just content-rich, this training helps teachers to deepen and develop their teaching skills as well as their interpersonal neurobiological self-care while teaching.
