DescriptionYoga is currently being incorporated in the Veterans Administration’s treatment protocols for PTSD and complex trauma. It is also being employed as an adjunctive therapy in addiction treatment and recovery centers across the United States. In this 3-day training, participants will explore the intersection of Subtle® Yoga and addiction and trauma recovery and learn Subtle® Yoga techniques to encourage resilience, self-regulation, self-soothing and healing for the nervous system and brain. Participants will also learn the principles of trauma informed yoga and how to integrate Subtle® Yoga into individual and group sessions to help clients learn to take effective action, to tolerate and shift unwanted feelings in the body, and to experience the body as a friend and ally in the healing process.
The application of yoga techniques to assist in managing chronic pain and the role of spirituality in healing will also be explored. Participants will be introduced to a yoga-informed biopsychosocial-spiritual model that addresses treatment as well as recovery, prevention and health promotion. Review of ethical standards for behavioral health providers and yoga practitioners will help to identify alignment and areas where further exploration is needed.
Subtle® Yoga is an exceptionally adaptable approach to yoga practice which is person centered and can be tailored to clients with differing abilities. It fosters the development of attention and mindfulness, and promotes spiritual development in the context of any belief system.
Please wear comfortable clothes to move in and dress in layers. You are welcome to bring a yoga mat.
