4 hour
Introduction to
Exhale to Inhale
Trauma-informed Yoga


September 26th, 2018     Brooklyn, New York


Join us for a 4-hour introduction to trauma informed yoga.

Approximately 70% of adults in the United States have experienced a traumatic event at least once in their lives and roughly 20% of these people go on to develop posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD.


It’s therefore likely that one or more students in an open level class is a trauma-survivor, regardless of whether they identity with this term. Students may come to class not realizing that the yoga practice may uncover trauma still held within the mind & body. Most students do not expect to have an intense memory, emotion, or physical response during a yoga class.

In this workshop, we will cover…

  • Types of trauma and it’s neurological & physiological implications

  • Recognizing symptoms of trauma and how they might show up in yoga

  • Tools for regulating the nervous system and how one might discharge and process trauma in the body

  • Exploring trauma-informed language and how to incorporate it

  • Asana - benefits and cautions

  • Trauma-informed pranayama and meditation techniques

“I came in with some basic background on trauma informed

yoga, so was unsure about how much new information I

would learn. I ended up learning more than I ever imagined

and came out inspired, touched, and with a more nuanced

and deep understanding of trauma informed yoga than I

thought possible.”

- AN, Training Participant, January 2018

“Thank you for a fantastic teacher training weekend! I really

enjoyed the experience. I wish to express kudos for bringing us together as a community, creating a safe space for us to be open and vulnerable, and for delivering high quality instruction. The class you led us through helped me

understand how a trauma-informed yoga class matters – I

could feel the difference.”

- JB, Training Participant, November 2017

“The way in which the training was facilitated was seamless.

The way in which it seeped into me was magical I loved the

intentional way in which community and safety was

prioritized during the training, mirroring a trauma informed

yoga class. I also loved how the nuance and complexity of

trauma and trauma informed yoga was not shied away from.”

-Training participant, January 2018


“I have walked away continuing to talk about the

neuroscience and the bodies response to an exhale vs an

inhale. I am still processing and feel like I will be working

through this training for many years to come. I am so

grateful. Thank you.”
