In this class, we will practice asana, pranayama and a guided, seated meditation. All levels of practitioner are welcome. Let’s send ripples of peace out into our neighborhood and our world.

As the Dalai Lama says, “If an individual were to make conscious intention to live his or her life with a sense of purpose, live it in a good way, then the ripple effect of that really spreads. First, from the individual to the family, then to the community… and so on. This is how society gets changed and effected.”

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE TO ACTIVE DUTY AND VETERANS.

Veterans Yoga Project is teaming up with Phinney Ridge Yoga to offer an extraordinary opportunity for intensive training in a proven, mindful approach to teaching yoga to veterans and others who are struggling with post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related psychological difficulties.

Mindful Resilience for Recovery and Resilience is an evidence-informed, clinically-tested yoga program that was developed specifically for veterans recovering from post-traumatic stress and other psychological difficulties. It is an evidence-informed, in that practices have been chosen and adapted based on clinical and neuro-scientific knowledge about post-traumatic stress and its treatment. It is clinically-tested, in that it was developed based on feedback from hundreds of veterans and active-duty service members receiving treatment at residential and outpatient treatment programs. Mindful Resilience has been successfully integrated into mental health and addiction treatment programs for veterans and active-duty military across the US and Canada.

In the Level One teacher training, you will explore:

  1. The development, course, and consequences of trauma-related disorders
  2. The psychotherapeutic treatment of trauma-related disorders and how yoga fits into an integrative treatment approach
  3. Special considerations and cautions when providing yoga therapy to veterans and other trauma-affected individuals
  4. Specific practices, guiding principles, and resources found to be helpful for veterans coping with trauma, including a detailed treatment manual with an empirically-informed, clinically-tested 12-week protocol, and access to a downloadable electronic copy (pdf) of the Mindful Resilience Yoga for Veterans Recovering from Trauma practice guide.

This Veterans Yoga Project training consists of a balance of practice and lecture/discussion. At the end of the training, participants will understand the symptoms of post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related disorders, how those symptoms are related to underlying neurobiology, and how to use this understanding to most effectively teach individuals recovering from trauma.
