In this workshop you will learn how to identify types of trauma and the ways in which it can manifest itself in children. The course will outline a variety of trauma informed best practices for Caregivers, Educators and Healthcare Professionals. Participants will learn the many parallels between trauma sensitive yoga and trauma therapy for positively impacting children’s health and well being. Participants will learn how to offer children a variety of mindful self regulation practices to learn present moment awareness to reduce dysregulation caused by trauma. Together we will explore how to recognize and support students who become dysregulated during yoga or mindfulness practice. Participants will be confident and fully prepared to lead, by learning what to expect when sharing trauma informed yoga and breathwork for different ages and stages of childhood development.
