ACE Study + Trauma among Adults

Teaching yoga, meditation or mindfulness from a ‘Trauma Informed’ approach requires additional considerations and an intentional methodology aimed at ensuring all who practice feel safe, supported and seen.

Completion of a weekend training in Trauma Informed Mindfulness is highly recommended for those wishing to teach high risk, at-risk or marginalized communities such as substance abuse, women’s shelters, homeless population, community clinics, prison/jail, etc. (Learn more or register for Amy’s upcoming Trauma Informed Intensive Training March 7-8, 2020 at North Port Yoga + Wellness!)

Healing trauma in adults often requires revisiting childhood stress or history of abuse. However difficult this practice may be, through a guided process of self-knowledge, self-inquiry and release, yoga techniques can benefit in releasing stored trauma from the body and mind.
