NEW! YOGA & TRAUMA SEMINARS FOR YOGA TEACHERS AND SOCIAL WORKERS AND ALL INETERSTED IN THE TOPICS CONTINUE 2022 & 2023 O N L I N E! (IN GERMAN)
Since the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic I started special online courses (IN ENGLISH) in Traumasensitive Yoga. I feel a growing need to use Yoga for dealing with trauma in our turbulent times.
The courses are aimed at everyone who feels the need to understand and experience traumasensitive yoga personally : practitioners, yoga teachers, therapists, people of all ages.
The sessions that include physical exercises from Hatha Yoga, breathing exercises (Pranayama), relaxation (variations of Yoga Nidra) and techniques from Raja Yoga to develop our inner observer.
The sessions give and allow room for own observation and reflection.
The focus in these traumasensitive sessions is on 3 main topics: Stability // Reframing // Peace
– STABILITY: understanding and deepening my roots and my body connection with the earth
– REFRAMING: going out of stagnation, the repetition of old stories and the state of helplesness
– PEACE: developing the feeling of inner peace, deep with myself
The techniques used in the sessions are based on the teachings of Bihar School of Yoga (India) and the Traumasensibles Yoga (TSY Ingradual, Germany).
YOGA AND TRAUMA: SEMINARS
The Russian war in the Ukraine, the flood catastrophy in Germany 2021 (which I experienced by myself), the Afghanistan crisis, the climate change, the global Covid 19 pandemic and all other current political events around the globe make many of us aware how deep trauma affects our lives.
2022 I develop more seminars who try to inform yoga teachers and other teachers on their responsibility in recognising trauma and developing awareness in dealing with it.
All seminars 2022 are hold in German.
Information about the seminars 2022 (in German) can be read here.
