Would you like to learn skills to help you stay more focused, present, grounded and centered as a yoga teacher and as human? Are you interested in understanding intuition from a body-based approach? Would you like to create classes that help your students do the same?

In this Advanced Teacher Training weekend, we’ll explore the foundational principles of Somatic Experiencing*** and how to use them to stay more settled in our nervous systems. We’ll learn about how the body and brain respond to stress, both in the immediate moment, and over the course of long periods of time. We’ll work with skills to help us stay the most centered and steady force in the room, and learn how to support our students to become more resilient and grounded as they practice with us.

We will learn how to be more inclusive to the students in our classrooms who are recovering from traumatic events, or who are operating under high levels of stress. Through pacing, language, and presence we can create classes that invite these students to meet their edge without going past it, and to work within their boundaries to reconnect with their own sense of power and joy.

Weekend will include lecture, group and individual exercises, asana practice, teaching skills and opportunities to practice them. Handouts will be provided.
