*What makes this training different from other Trauma-Informed Yoga Trainings?

-this training has a strong clinical focus, which whether you are a yoga teacher, mental health professional or coming from another modality, is helpful in achieving a richer understanding around the impact of trauma, the various ways it manifests, and the options for treatment and trauma resolution
-in this training you will not only receive knowledge in trauma-informed yoga, you will learn techniques from several somatic-based psychotherapy modalities, including Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), and mindfulness-based interventions

*What sets Nityda apart?

-As a yoga teacher for the past 13 years, Nityda has worked with diverse populations, teaching and training others to teach in public yoga studios, substance abuse rehabilitation centers, adult and adolescent units within psychiatric hospitals, drop in centers for youth, public and private school systems, and clinically within the psychotherapy setting.
-Nityda is a licensed and practicing psychotherapist. As a mental health professional working with trauma in a somatic and holistic way, Nityda holds a wider scope of practice and is keen to the intricacies that present within clinical settings. Nityda is trained in a variety of somatic-based and trauma-focused psychotherapies including Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and mindfulness-based modalities.
-Nityda’s dual licensure as both yoga professional and mental health professional inform her wider scope of practice and experience in supporting trauma survivors, that is rare to find in a trauma-informed yoga teacher trainer.
-Nityda’s energy has been described as “grounding, calm and compassionate,” while also “playful and light-hearted.” Some have said Nityda brings an “intriguing edge” (maybe it’s the tattoos!). Please visit www.traumaconsciousyoga.com to read testimonials.

In this training, you will learn about the history and philosophical implications that create and sustain yoga’s usefulness in clinical contexts. You will receive an overview of Trauma and PTSD: what they are, how they impact the body-mind-spirit continuum, how they are stored in the brain, and how yoga is a supportive modality in their resolution, as supported by research. You will also receive a rich understanding of Polyvagal theory within the above content and a brief look into the neuroscience of trauma.

I will teach you a diverse repertoire of Yoga Tools: mindfulness meditations, mudras, yoga breathing exercises (pranayamas), and yoga poses (asanas) that have been proven effective for resolving trauma and improving overall mental health. You’ll learn about yoga psychology and the clinical application of the chakra system in assessment and treatment planning.

You will gain an understanding of The Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method℠ and how it differs from other Yogic perspectives. You’ll learn how to make your sessions Trauma-Informed.
