Trauma Informed Kundalini Yoga for Recovery from Post-Traumatic Stress

Participation is open to Level 1 Certified Kundalini Teachers who have taken Foundations of
Kundalini Yoga Therapy: Principles and Practices. Learn how to teach trauma informed
Kundalini Yoga to people recovering from Post-Traumatic Stress

No matter what the cause of the trauma, movement through Kriya, breath and mantra are
time-tested approaches clinically demonstrated to be effective in helping people reconnect
with their body, reduce symptoms, and provide the support to move from a state of
reactivity to an experience of safety and calm.
This training is skill based: you'll leave knowing how to safely teach Kundalini Yoga to
those recovering from trauma, no matter what the source. You will learn and practice the
specific skills you need to compassionately, safely, and effectively instruct a trauma
informed Kundalini Yoga course for people recovering from Post-Traumatic Stress.
This training is science based: you will learn how trauma dis-regulates the brain, nervous,
structural, and endocrine systems and what specific practices of Kundalini Yoga re-set self-
regulation over the effects of trauma.
This training is research based: Three scientific studies on the 10-week curriculum you will
teach demonstrates this evidence based Trauma Informed Kundalini Yoga curriculum is safe
and effective for those recovering from trauma. In addition, you'll receive a review of the
published studies on the bio-medical effects of yoga practice on trauma recovery.
You will not find this collection of skill, science, and research on the process of recovery
from trauma through Kundalini Yoga anywhere else.

At the end of the training you will be able to:
1) Identify the indicators of Post-Traumatic Stress and what is necessary for
recovery.
2) Understand the impact of trauma on the brain, glandular and nervous systems
and how a specific practice of Kundalini Yoga restores healthy regulation to these systems.
3) Gain skill in methods to co-regulate with your students and clients
4) Skillfully apply your language and manner as a teacher to deliver a Trauma
Informed, evidence based therapeutic Kundalini Yoga curriculum.
5) Gain skill in helping a person who has been activated to safely restore calm and
presence.
