Ocean & Crow Presents: The Fine Balance Trauma Informed Yoga Training For Yoga & Healthcare Professionals Part 1 & II

with Nicole Marcia, MA, C-IAYT, YACEP, TCTSY-F

This intimate, unique and intensive training is a synthesis of Nicole’s frontline experience as a Yoga Therapist in the field of concurrent disorders and a culmination of her on-going personal and professional immersion and education in trauma informed Yoga for over a decade. This training is for anyone who wants to understand more about their own traumatic experience and healing journey and anyone who wants to know more about how to support others in theirs.

Research supports the benefits of Yoga as an effective complement to other traditional therapies in the stabilization and healing of individuals struggling with the aftermath of acute or chronic, prolonged exposure to trauma. By supporting and enhancing the efficacy of other therapeutic interventions, Yoga can contribute to an individual’s long term stability and recovery. Yoga and healthcare professionals can learn to utilize Yoga with groups and individuals in order to safely support them in developing a sense of agency, safe embodiment and to provide them with tools for self-regulation.

Upon completion of this training, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of the underpinnings and application of trauma informed Yoga theories and techniques to support survivors in their healing. Trauma informed Yoga techniques are simple, highly effective and versatile and can be easily integrated into a variety of settings.

In this Fine Balance Trauma Informed Yoga Training participants will:

  • Gain a theoretical and experiential foundation in trauma informed Yoga theory and techniques.

  • Understand the therapeutic application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga when working with depression, anxiety, addictions, PTSD and developmental/complex trauma.

  • Learn how to create safe classes and practices make for trauma survivors that emphasize choice and focus on the importance of internal, felt experience.

  • Explore & practice teaching therapeutic breathing and grounding techniques and the physical forms of Yoga.

  • Examine & discuss the Koshas (levels of the human being), Kleshas (the cycle of suffering), Yamas & Niyamas (ethics and practices), the Gunas (basic psychological archetypes), Langhana & Brahmana (categories of Yoga practices) as they pertain to trauma experience.

  • Investigate the differences and intersections between Western medical and Yogic perspectives of trauma, the body and disease.

  • Consider the dynamics within the therapeutic relationship including the importance of boundaries, self-care, strengths-based and client centered practices.
