What this training isn’t:
This training is in no way meant to replace the work of health care professionals and as such, will not tell you how to heal your own trauma(s) or the trauma(s) of others.
Amanda is extremely well versed in trauma informed yoga. She is knowledgeable, passionate about the subject and is able to share her knowledge in a way that is understandable, practical and informed.
This whole training is about meeting yourself and people where they are at and growing from there. I wish this training was mandatory for all humans.
I learnt so much about myself & about my own trauma and skills and resources I can use to teach both kids and adults. Grateful for Amanda’s teaching always ❤️
This was very informative, and as a yoga teacher I feel like I was able to take and apply some of these principles in my general public classes right away. On a personal level learning about this topic has expanded my awareness of my own reactions and helped me to understand myself on a new level. Thank you for the care and effort put into leading this course, and for handling a sensitive topic with kindness and understanding.
This training was life changing for me. Not only did I learn how to support others in trauma, I learned how to support myself in a whole new way. It gave me the understanding of why I struggle with PTSD at a deeper, more compassionate level. I was blown away by Amanda’s knowledge and expertise. She also creates the safest space I have ever found to learn how to show up as I am and share my gifts with others. I would highly recommend this Trauma Training for all.
Amanda’s trauma-informed yoga training went beyond my expectations. I appreciated the science behind how trauma affects the nervous system and brain, as well as exploring how power dynamics and adverse childhood experiences contribute to someone’s trauma. The principles of trauma-informed yoga were clearly explained, as well as highlighting language choices. I’m really glad I participated in the optional practicum – creating a short practice really showed me how challenging it is to use appropriate language and maintain a feeling of invitation for the students.
Having a trauma informed perspective has added so much to my mind. Affirmations that all of us experience life in different stages and the range of ways are nervous system responds. Learned so much and have a few knew outlooks of some past chapters in my life.
Amanda delivered a very informed workshop, she was very knowledgeable regarding the subject of Trauma informed Yoga. The discussions were open and I felt Amanda really respected the participants sharing their stories or experiences.
Amanda’s TI YTT was incredibly informative and insightful. There was ample opportunity to observe and practice TI practices. I feel prepared and empowered to incorporate TI principles into my teaching.
What a wonderful course and simply eye opening about the power of the mind body connection. This course helped put in perspective my own experiences, while also providing a framework for both making trauma sensitive classes, as well as adding concepts of trauma informed yoga into everyday classes.
