Solemarch – a trauma-informed yoga training is a 25-hour weekend training, meant to lay the foundation for teaching more specialized populations, led by Sangeeta Vallabhan.
We live in an incredibly diverse society, with equally diverse life experiences. And how anyone responds to any one type of traumatic experience varies from person to person. There is no wrong way or right way to respond to any stressful event, but how we treat each other and ourselves sometimes requires more care and consideration. After more traumatic experiences, such as rape, war, systemic racism, car accidents, losing a loved one or physical, sexual or verbal abuse, to name only a few, most of us would benefit from a type of yoga or meditation practice that is unlike your typical “open” class. For a traumatized individual, those classes can seem intimidating, alienating, and simply not comforting. In this training, you will learn some methods and concepts of teaching a trauma-informed class. We will explore serving different populations such as rape and domestic violence survivors, veterans, and the military community and communities of color.
This training will include lecture, practicing trauma-informed yoga, and practice teaching sessions.
All sessions will be online and must be attended live. Sessions will not be recorded.
