Loading Events

This training is for YOGA TEACHERS / TEACHER TRAINEES and includes a 60 minute trauma- informed practice.
The two core components of this training are 

Mind-Body Connection: you will learn the physiology + neuroscience of trauma. We explore its’ impact on neurology, physical + energy bodies, emotional + mental health and attachment + relationships. 

Resilience: you will learn how to support post traumatic growth within the boundaries of a yoga class offering. Specifically, we look at verbal cues, language, the power of choice, potential triggers, hands-on adjustments, specific asana/ movement, and tools for grounding + self-regulation. The goal is to cultivate awareness, compassion + a set of best practices that we can offer through a trauma informed lens in hopes to hold safe space for any student.

Led by Megan Davis, LISW-S, RYT/500. Megan has over 15 years of experience working as a school based therapist in inner city Cleveland. Since completing her first yoga teacher training in 2012, she has integrated yoga + mindfulness into her work with children, teens, families + women. She has taught trauma-informed yoga in schools, mental health agencies and drug + alcohol treatment settings.

In addition to yoga teacher training and empowerment workshops, she currently teaches yoga + mindfulness at Applewood Centers and serves as the Director of Curriculum + Instruction for the local non-profit ZENworks Yoga.
