Yoga Therapy Training for Recovery from Trauma and Chronic Pain

A workshop for yoga teachers, healthcare professionals and spiritual leaders

July 4-6 10:00-5:00

Salsbury Center, Edinburgh, UK

20 hours CEC includes two hours of research and homework

This 20 hour training is focused on how to present intentional practices from the yoga tradition that will help with recovery from the effects of trauma and chronic pain. The practices will be simple for healthcare professionals to add to their practices and informative for yoga teachers who want to adjust their teaching methodology to work with clients who suffer from trauma and chronic pain. We will focus on how yoga therapy can address trauma by looking at our client’s healing path holistically.  We will look deep into yoga philosophy on how the mind processes information energetically. We will also explore the research that has been done on how yoga modulates can effect brain functioning – healing parts of the brain that have been effecting by trauma. We will also explore the relationship of chronic pain and trauma, learning evidence-based techniques and teaching methodology to aid in healing. The last day of the workshop is open to the public to come and try some classes taught by Nancy so that you can observe these skills in action. We will also include a lunchtime panel discussion on the accessibility of wellness to all members of the community. Last day includes lunch. Please dress in comfortable clothing.

Moving Forward from Trauma and Chronic Pain Conference

Join us for this 6 hour conference to learn techniques to help recover from high stress, trauma and pain. This day long conference is about intentional small steps to deep healing. Healing form incidents that shouldn’t have happened to us when we were kids. Healing form the divorce that left us reeling, healing from loved ones that left too soon. Healing emotionally form the illness that we were diagnosed with. Healing from the non-stop challenges that unbalance us, healing from the issues that our loved ones have that we need to give to. All these take a toil on that body and mind. Learning techniques to do in a chair, guided meditations and new ways of healthy relaxation.  We will have a lunchtime panel discussion on the accessibility of wellness in the community.  20 Pounds registration fee with the options of donations to Salsbury house on the day of the conference. Includes lunch



Our next Talk Story over Coffee event will be in December. Watch for details
