We believe each and every yoga teacher needs training in trauma sensitivity.
Every year over 15,000 individuals graduate from a yoga teacher training program and go out into the world eager to bring the immense benefits of yoga to others. This beautifully healing and profound work touches the student at the nervous system level, impacting their breath, body, emotions and reactions, often in largely positive and even life changing ways. At the same time, we know that 70% of the population has been affected by trauma in the US alone. Trauma survivors are in every room and their needs and reactions are different from other students. It’s of the utmost importance that we are giving yoga teachers the tools they need to avoid harm and retriggering as vulnerable folks enter their space. This is at the root of our work and the mission of Three and a Half Acres Yoga.
