The Experience

This first evening is all about getting comfortable, setting boundaries, and getting to know the CYANWOOD space, the training facilitators, the training outline, and each other!

We will introduce the curriculum with an overview of the training and some trauma concepts for at-home reflection.

- JOURNALING: Invitation to reflect on personal big traumas and little traumas, and your own embodied experiences with triggers.

Fri, Feb 17th 5-8pm

DAY ONE

getting to know each other and training orientation

In a relaxed and safe space, participants will dive deep into  the science of trauma and the art of trauma-informed teaching, with breaks, journaling and interactive demonstrations woven throughout the experience. We will honor the body's need for activity, rest, and reflection.

 

Participants will be invited to explore their own trauma filters, and learn:

- an introduction to the science and physiology of trauma, and the varied expressions of trauma responses in the body and on the mat;

- the role their own trauma plays in teaching spaces and in day-to-day life;

- our personal limitations and potential blindspots;

- the basics of invitational and compassionate cueing, teaching space design, and trauma-informed poses; and

- Pranayama (breathwork), mindfulness techniques, Pratyahara and Yoga Nidra (sense withdrawal techniques) for countering and preventing post-traumatic triggered responses.

Sat, Feb 18th 9am-5pm

In small groups and individually, participants will get to apply what they've learned through practice teaching.  We'll answer questions along the way and offer feedback after practice sessions. 

Each person will go home with:

- the knowledge to create safe group spaces, and practice trauma-informed cueing and mindfulness techniques;

- access to powerful tools and resources for coping with and managing trauma triggers; and

- a shell outline for designing THREE DIFFERENT Trauma-Informed Classes (one 5-10min class, one 30min class, and one 60-90min class)
