Together, all of the teachers have over 50 years of combined teaching experience. Through this retreat, you will learn the ancient art and science of teaching yoga for people who have gone through trauma such as PTSD.

This training is popular to social workers, civil servants, healthcare professionals, teachers, yoga instructors, and anyone surviving trauma or working with survivors of trauma. You will also learn Myofascial release, which is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Applied yoga therapy is taught in a practical manner.

Another highlight of this training program is an opportunity to learn Reiki and Ayurvedic Indian massage which is an ancient healing art involving intensive work on the body’s meridians utilizing assisted stretching, deep compression, channeling of breath, and rhythmic movements. It is traditionally performed on a fully dressed recipient lying on a thin floor mat with or without oils. Please inquire if interested and note that Reiki and Ayurveda Massage are optional.

The comprehensive yoga anatomy modules will set the foundation for a practice as a trauma yoga therapist. By keeping class sizes small, it is ensured that every student will work or gets worked on by the instructor, making the learning accurate and experiential. The Ayurveda, massage, and yoga anatomy modules are conducted from Friday-Sunday about 60 minutes per day (6 hours total).

The modules for the 6-hour Ayurveda Massage training cover about 45 massage techniques with the client lying usually in a supine or lying-on-their-back position. The course is also beneficial for massage therapists, body workers, yoga practitioners, energy healers, and people interested in alternative healing methods for clients, friends, and family.
