About the Event

Roots Shoppe Presents:

Spreading Healing-

A Trauma Education Course for Yoga Teachers.

Facilitated By Vanessa Murray 500 E-RYT, YACEP CCTS-Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist and author of Spreading Healing-A holistic approach to healing trauma through Yoga for Yoga teachers.

In this course, we will explore the latest in trauma theory as it relates to yoga. This training is evidence and inquiry-based collaboration from experts in the fields of trauma and yoga. After completion of this training, our hope is that you will feel empowered to offer trauma-sensitive yoga classes to a variety of populations and increase accessibility by being able to offer private trauma-informed sessions. If you are not a yoga teacher, this training will support you in your own self-regulation and offer you tools you can use with patients and/or clients.


Through lecture, self-inquiry, group discussion and practice teaching, we will cover, but not limited to:

*What trauma is, its history and how it affects the body 

*What is a trauma-informed or trauma-sensitive yoga class and how does it differ from “regular” yoga

*Breath awareness, anatomy, practices, and interactive teaching 

*Tools that you can use in your classes to make all classes trauma-sensitive.

These skills will be useful in your own journey as well as valuable in your role as a teacher. Vanessa is a Yoga Alliance Certified Education Provider-YACEP therefore all YA certified teachers will receive 4 Contact CEU's and TEYT-Trauma Educated Yoga Teacher designation after completion of the course. All teachers, clinicians and counselors are welcome. Course fees are $200 plus $9.99 Spreading Healing Course Manual-Module 1.
